Round 1

Reviewer 1 Report

This study by Sender et al. investigated endangered species (Drosera) at a site in Poland. I appreciate the authors have intense investigation on Drosera (Sundew), specie with widespread attention. The pictures looks interesting. The whole text reads like an investigation report. It looks like a traditional study about vegetation and environment. The manuscript also contains seed collecting and sprout experiment. It seems lots of results mixed here. The key scientific question or hypothesis is not clear, as lost in “more described” results and discussion text. Although I think the results are valuable, it is better to improve and sharp the text. For example, which environment or climate sundew prefer? How climate change and/or human activities could impact sundew population?

 

Overall, this study is worth publishing, but the writing needs improvement. I suggest to more focus on one or two hypothesis or scientific questions.

Reviewer 2 Report

Good work.

Could the criteria used in selecting sites for restoration to be further explained such as 

Is the lake water level variation a factor to be considered?

Should the restoration of Sphagnum moss be planned together?
