Darwin's naturalisation conundrum describes the paradox that the relatedness of exotic species to native residents could either promote or hinder their success through opposing mechanisms: niche pre-adaptation or competitive interactions. Previous studies focusing on single snapshots of invasion patterns have provided support to both sides of the conundrum.(More)
A major concern in developing microbially-assisted phytoextraction (MAP) is that the effects of introduced microbes on indigenous soil microbial community are profound and irreversible. To date, however, the microbial properties of soils subjected to MAP remain poorly understood. Therefore, we explored the effects of inoculation with a bacterial consortium(More)
Microbial community composition is essential for aquatic ecosystem functions and has been explored across diverse environments and various spatial scales. However, documented patterns are often based on samples from spatially/geographically separated locations or sites. Here, we define sampling volume as spatial scale and examine (by Illumina 16S rRNA(More)
