Editor rating: 8 / 10Stephen Johnson –– I am not intimately acquainted with the current state of the field and so I am guided in this rating by the response of the reviewer.
Editor rating: 7 / 10Richard Cowling –– The paper represents a comprehensive inventory in a remote area vulnerable to the impacts of climate change. It will form the basis for a monitoring programme that will likely reveal important trends in biotic change.
Editor rating: 7 / 10David Roberts –– Brings together and adds more knowledge of this clade, including new data thus representing a monograph
Editor rating: 7 / 10Alexander Mikheyev –– This is a useful tool, which may be of use to many scientists studying TE insertions.
Editor rating: 7 / 10Gerard Lazo –– With reference genomes taking shape and becoming ready; background experiments to build hypotheses on genome structure are still relevant. Though a clear answer may not have been presented here, a negative result is not necessarily unhelpful; another approach should be contemplated.
Editor rating: 7 / 10Blanca Landa –– It describes new sources of rare endophytes that can serve as new BCAs
Editor rating: 7 / 10Francis Martin –– This study is exploring a poorly investigated field of microbial ecology: the structure of endophytic fungal communities in the leaves of a large set of species in a wide range of biomes.
Editor rating: 8 / 10Cong-Jun Li –– The selection of suitable reference genes is crucial to accurately evaluate and normalize the relative expression level of target genes for gene function analysis. This manuscript provides some important information about the references genes for pigs, one is of important economic value.
Editor rating: 8 / 10Leon Higley –– Given their broad ecological impacts, this work significantly adds to growing evidence of risks associated with the use of neonicotinoid insecticides.
Editor rating: 8 / 10Ivo Feussner –– This is one of the first in which RNA seq data are made publicly available for this organism.
