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.
Editor rating: 7 / 10Andrew Farke –– Describes a new fossil species from a group of turtles that are ecologically important in North America today.
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.
