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.
Editor rating: 6 / 10Gerard Lazo –– Stem rust disease of the cereals is of global importance and information that can guide decision making in developing improved germplasm can assist progress.
Editor rating: 8 / 10Ladislav Mucina –– Solid piece of routine work on whole-genome sequencing, adding valuable data on an evolutionary intricate taxonomic group.
Editor rating: 7 / 10Paolo Giordani –– A straight forward study of fungal diversity in soybean roots: Yang & collaborators highlighted that the diversity of soybean endophytic fungal communities are site- and tissue-specific. By investigating soybean–endophytic fungi interaction, this paper provides new insights for the use of beneficial microorganisms to promote healthy of plants such as soybean.
Editor rating: 6 / 10Maria Luisa Fernandez-Marcos –– The manuscript addresses an interesting subject: the relationship between soil colour and drainage conditions. Although this is a well-studied and well-known subject, the attempt to develop a drainage index defined from a commonly and easily determined soil property is noteworthy and useful for soil surveyors. The study handles a huge number of soil profiles and uses a sound methodology.
