Editor rating: 7 / 10Jack Stanford –– Great contribution to the conservation of caves and cave faunas.
Editor rating: 7 / 10Donald Kramer –– It has taken an interesting approach using internet photos to attempt to assess the frequency and distribution of associations between African birds and mammals. It illustrates the potential of internet photos to contribute to increased scientific understanding.
Editor rating: 8 / 10Fernando Spilki –– The information and data may be important in the wide field of molecular parasitology.
Editor rating: 8 / 10Xavier Pochon –– This study provides the first range-wide phylogeographic study of the banded coral shrimp S. hispidus, extending across more than 27,000 km of the globe. Coalescence analysis brings evidence that an isolated Indo-Pacific lineage evolved from a rare dispersal event from the Atlantic around South Africa via the Benguela Current, thereby colonizing the Indian and Pacific Oceans, followed by dispersal across the Indo-Pacific in the last 200,000 years. Surprisingly, this benthic coral reef associated shrimp shows a single haplotype dominating the largest continuous tropical oceanic expanse on the planet.
Editor rating: 7 / 10Ann Hedrick –– It describes behavior that has not previously been documented in an important pest species.
Editor rating: 7 / 10Minjun Chen –– This is a specific PK study in dogs and the authors have made a good experiment and report
Editor rating: 8 / 10Gabriela Parra Olea –– Herpetofauna from Thailand is far from being known or understood. This paper provides very important data to the field. The authors did a great job in using modern tools to evaluate the validity of the taxon and discussed it in the light of more general themes such a Biogeography and Evolution.
Editor rating: 7 / 10Dany Garant –– Nice overview of published literature on the topic.
Editor rating: 8 / 10Curtis Daehler –– Experiments demonstrate that although ants are frequent floral visitors and they carry pollen, they are not effective pollinators and they may even be detrimental to reproduction in a rare plant.
Editor rating: 7 / 10Theodore Eliades –– Archaeo-dentistry is an emerging discipline which applies modern analytical techniques to investigate samples obtained from excavations or other archaeological material.
