Editor rating: 7 / 10Alberto Davalos –– Understanding the mechanism of high stability of plant miRNAs outside the plant is relevant for their possible cross-kingdom regulation (if any). Their transport in exosome-like nanoparticles could be one of those mechanism. However, whether this is enough to have a biological effect in vivo is unknown.
Editor rating: 7 / 10Michael LaMontagne –– Shows how bacteria isolated from one crop can benefit another.
Editor rating: 8 / 10Paolo Giordani –– A good and unique contribution about the cycad reproduction in natural populations.
Editor rating: 7 / 10Vsevolod Makeev –– The authors carefully invested into DNA scaffolding and resolved insertion and inversion in their mt genome, by the way adding the number of sunflower mt genomes available from one two three.
Editor rating: 6 / 10Yuriy Orlov –– Drought tolerance in wheat is important agricultural problem.
Editor rating: 6 / 10Budiman Minasny –– This paper described a field experiment on reducing bare soil cover in vineyards
Editor rating: 6 / 10Samuel Abiven –– It brings new information about crop behaviour under warming.
Editor rating: 7 / 10Gabriela Parra Olea –– This manuscript contains a large amount of data to elucidate the phylogenetic relationships of a group of orchids. Interesting methodology.
Editor rating: 7 / 10Paolo Giordani –– A small but effective evidence to the fact that we still need good basic sistematic research.
Editor rating: 6 / 10William DiMichele –– Considers the evolution of a conifer reproductive organ system in light of developmental and evolutionary biology. Conifer ovulate cones have long been of interest and this paper should attract attention from various parts of the botanical and evolutionary-developmental research communities.
