Editor rating: 7 / 10Xavier Pochon –– This is very much classic work, some would say “old fashioned” but as it has a place in the field of coral reef biology. Scientific data on coral reproduction are scarce and hard to obtain, but they are essential for understanding the basic functional biology and adaptation of these complex organisms.
Editor rating: 7 / 10Ewa Chrostek –– Anopheles mosquitoes are the deadliest animals on the planet due to their ability to vector malaria. This work is a small but important step towards full understanding of their biology and possible development of methods enabling control of these insects.
Editor rating: 7 / 10Leon Higley –– This manuscript contributes to our understanding of morphological variation in an important insect pest species
Editor rating: 7 / 10Rachel McMullan –– This article contributes to our understanding of how social groupings play both positive and negative roles in protecting animals from infection.
Editor rating: 9 / 10James Reimer –– A massive and detailed work which comparatively examines and summarizes the internal anatomy of the class Staurazoa for the first time, illustrated with an enormous set of figures. This manuscript will serve as a useful reference on this understudied group of animals for years to come.
Editor rating: 9 / 10Peirong Jiao –– This paper reported retrospective analysis of archived material from one of the last confirmed cases in England in the year 2000 demonstrated the previous existence of a very diverse PED virus strain. Authors suggested that further investigation of PED archived material from Europe and elsewhere established the degree of heterogeneity of historic PEDV strains and filled sequence data.
Editor rating: 8 / 10Marcio Pie –– It provides an important advance toward our understanding of a highly diverse group of flies.
Editor rating: 7 / 10William Jungers –– Even with its small sample sizes, it expands our understanding of the basic bone biology of a poorly known mammalian species, and this information may be of use to other nonspecialist scientists in paleontology and conservation biology.
Editor rating: 8 / 10Dezene Huber –– Important step forward in the use of a pest management tactic.
Editor rating: 9 / 10Mauricio Rodriguez-Lanetty –– This study presents novel phylogenomic data to assess the evolutionary relationships between scleractinians and corallimorpharians, and provides insights in the understanding of the evolution of calcification in the coral lineage.
