Editor rating: 8 / 10Graciela Piñeiro –– The article includes an interdisciplinary study of Carboniferous micro and macrofloristic assemblages. It is an interesting contribution to understand the relatively relevance of calibrating palynologic versus macrofloristic studies for biostratigrafic correlation even in a regional context.
Editor rating: 7 / 10Jay Evans –– This is a life stage that allows an important plant parasite to survive between bouts of parasitism, and knowing the physiological changes of diapause could lead to innovative controls
Editor rating: 8 / 10Luis Eguiarte –– The inverted flowers of Lacandonia schismatica, where the male parts are central and surrounded by the female parts, are almost unique among angiosperms. Until recently, Lacandonia was known only from a single species, L. schismatica, endemic to the rain forests of southeastern Mexico. The paper describes the ontogeny of the flowers of Lacandonia brasiliana, a recently discovered species from the extreme north of the Atlantic Forest in northeastern Brazil. The close similarity between the two Lacandonia species makes it unlikely that they arose independently. The detailed comparative analyses of the paper make it an important contribution to the study of the evolution of these “inside-out” flowers.
Editor rating: 8 / 10Alexander Mikheyev –– Provides a well-documented bioinformatic pipeline, and a comprehensive investigation of the process.
Editor rating: 7 / 10Luis Eguiarte –– This paper seems to be the most important contribution for this group of poorly known plants in a long time, and shows the plasticity of the vegetative traits in the genus. The study will be useful for the future understanding of the group, in particular for solving taxonomic and conservation issues.
Editor rating: 8 / 10Alexander Mikheyev –– Potentially important finding about the unexpected consequences of biocontrol.
Editor rating: 7 / 10Valeria Souza –– the problem of bee colonies been abandoned is a global issue for agriculture, however, even if the observations are not so new, as the second reviewer noted, the issue still controvertial
