With regret, I must inform you that, based on the advice received, we are unable to consider your manuscript for publication in Annals of Forest Science under its present form.

Nevertheless, if you feel able to address all the concerns raised by the referees, we would be pleased to reconsider a thoroughly revised version of your manuscript for publication. In this case, please submit the revised version as a fully new manuscript to Editorial Manager, together with the reference of the earlier version as well as a detailed cover letter providing a clear statment of the changes brought to the manuscript.

COMMENTS FOR THE AUTHOR:


Handling Editor:

Dear authors

In your manuscript you study XXXXX, and XXXX. The study contains valuable information to understand the effects of forest species composition on soil fauna, and an arduous fieldwork has been carried out.

However, the rationale of the study is poorly described and no explicit hypotheses are presented. An important concern is that although the response of fauna to environmental changes is the main aim of the research, no analysis searching for causality was performed concerning temperature, precipitation or edaphic variables and fauna richness. The tittle does not reflect the findings of the work (i.e., no spatial analyses or regressions with climatic variables have been performed), and the key message is difficult to understand in the abstract and along the text. Through an extensive review, both reviewers provide very valuable advice for improving the ms.

Both underlined that the methods are poorly detailed. The discussion, that is no always supported by results, has to be rewritten. Finally, a thorough English editing is also recommended.

With best regards

The handling editor.



Reviewer #2: The authors have to work strongly on the text, overall the discussion. They have the information in figures and tables, but they ommitted to write some relevant information, so I encourage the authors to rewrite, and to rework the discussion. I recommend to change the tittle, because I dont see the environmental information that they suggest. I see that the study was developed at different forests with a diffent gradient of altitude, but not environmental conditions, wel this information is not in the manuscript.


Reviewer #3: I found the study interesting and potentially giving a valuable contribution to our understanding of the responses of soil fauna to changes in forest composition due to management. I suspect the methods used for analyzing the data was appropriate, even though not enough details are given to be sure about this. The discussion brought up some interesting theories concerning the mechanisms behind the observed patterns and the connection to succession is well described.

However, I found the method section to poorly written to fully be able to review if the fauna has been sampled properly, the data have been handled appropriate and how the analyzes have been performed. Overall, the text was not constructed in a logical way and sometimes that made it unclear what the point the authors wanted to make was. I recommend the ms to rewritten to clarify especially the method section before it can be considered for publication. I would suggest the authors to get help with checking the language by a native English that also knows the field of ecology, to make sure that what they intend to say gets through.

My major concerns are the poor description of the methods and the sometimes strange interpretation of the results, I think the conclusions drawn are not always supported by the results.

Some of the most important points to take into consideration during a potential revision of the ms are listed in the next page

应该还是有机会的,但至于机会大还是不大,看楼主能不能就审稿人的意见进行修改。如果觉得可以改,那机会还是挺大的
resubmission的意见是介于大修和直接拒稿之间吧,可以按照大修来对待,重投回去,应该还是这几个审稿人
每次修改对自己都是一次提高的机会,如果意见不难回答,建议楼主重投试试,加油!
我讲的不对的地方还请楼下指正
