I have just finish a paper that I would like to get it published and my feeling is that it still needs completeness. The paper relates to soil fungi in which molecular PCR-DGGE and sequencing was used.

In my opinion the article is easy to understand but still I find it "hard" to read and follow. I think this weakness come from two sides: 1 Since I am not native English speaker some sentences or group of sentences are written in a complicated manner. I can not find the right wording to make it simpler and to the point. So I think the text needs some rephrasing for simplicity and clarity. 2 I feel the paper main ideas are well highlighted but needs to enhance the flow of ideas, get the attention directed to those ideas so that the logic line keeps comprehensive and consistent.
Besides what I consider the main two weaknesses, some improvement on verb tense according to current scientific language and style will be needed.

I would like to know how conformable you feel with this the area treated in the paper and if you could pay attention to the need to improve points I have mentioned.

Thanks in advance for your attention.
