Donald Kramer –– It provides a coherent synthesis of a large amount of data framed by a coherent hypothesis.
Development and evaluation of rapid novel isothermal amplification assays for important veterinary pathogens: Chlamydia psittaci and Chlamydia pecorum

Editor rating: 8 / 10

Joseph Gillespie –– This work will help with identifying and diagnosing severe chlamydial pathogens that are relevant to veterinary research.
Early-branching euteleost relationships: areas of congruence between concatenation and coalescent model inferences

Editor rating: 7 / 10

Tim Collins –– To the extent that phylogenetics is used across all biological disciplines, these results may be significant, especially, if they do the suggested data/method exploration in the revisions to address the conflicting results between methodologies.
Laboratory evaluation of different formulations of Stress Coat® for slime production in goldfish (Carassius auratus) and koi (Cyprinus carpio)

Editor rating: 7 / 10

Mohammad Shamsur Rahman –– Stress coat for slime production can help to better wound healing.
The semi-aquatic pondweed bugs of a Cretaceous swamp

Editor rating: 7 / 10

Kenneth De Baets –– The authors describe new semi-aquatic pondweed bugs and a potential mechanism for their absence in other equally old deposits. The also highlight the use of infrared microscopy as promising technique to study of poorly visible organisms preserved in amber. It would therefore be of interest to entomologist, evolutionary biologist and paleontologist alike.
Effects of tire leachate on the invasive mosquito Aedes albopictus and the native congener Aedes triseriatus

Editor rating: 9 / 10

Ilaria Negri –– Aedes albopictus is an invasive mosquito species, able to adapt to many environments. This article helps to shed light on its ecology.
