Editor rating: 7 / 10Marc Robinson-Rechavi –– This study allows to link natural variation in morphology with genetic divergence in expression patterns, thus helping link ecology to molecular genomics.
Editor rating: 7 / 10Mark Young –– This manuscript is an excellent, thorough description of a new specimen of the iconic early bird Archaeopteryx.
Editor rating: 8 / 10Joseph Gillespie –– It is important for the agricultural industry and the knowledge base for C. percorum infection dynamics
Editor rating: 9 / 10Mohammad Shamsur Rahman –– very much fantastic work in the field of taxonomy, both in classical and molecular approach!
Editor rating: 7 / 10Kenneth De Baets –– The manuscript reviews the potential replacement of associations of mollusc plankton and giant filter feeders from the Mesozoic to the modern. It will therefore be of interest to biologists, ecologists and paleontologists.
Editor rating: 7 / 10Shao-Chen Sun –– This work provided the basic roles of JARID2 on bovine oocytes.
Editor rating: 7 / 10Michael Huston –– Some of the logistical constraints on obtaining adequate genetic samples and interpreting their patterns over large complex regions can be addressed by multi-scale spatial analyses of the data.
Editor rating: 9 / 10Ilaria Negri –– The article deals with a new biotechnology with broad application in agriculture but with a potential risk for non target insects
Editor rating: 8 / 10Peirong Jiao –– Wild songbirds or rodents play a key role in spreading avian influenza virus across an agricultural landscape.
Editor rating: 7 / 10James Reimer –– A thorough assessment of the growth patterns and reproductive biology of a commercially important parrotfish species.
