First review round: 20.9 weeks. Overall rating: 1 (bad). Outcome: Accepted.

Considering this was a very straight forward phylogeographic study, it did not require such a long initial time in review. Neither reviewer seemed to be very well informed about basic population genetic concepts. In particular, the lengthy response necessary for the second reviewer was essentially an explanation of simple concepts (isolation by distance, interpretation of structure plots etc). Needless to say this type of review is a waste of time for authors and not a word was changed in the paper.
