Structure and functions of the bacterial microbiota of plants.
Plants host distinct bacterial communities on and inside various plant organs, of which those associated with roots and the leaf surface are best characterized. The phylogenetic composition of theseExpand

Quantitative divergence of the bacterial root microbiota in Arabidopsis thaliana relatives
Significance All plants carry distinctive bacterial communities on and inside organs such as roots and leaves, collectively called the plant microbiota. How this microbiota diversifies in relatedExpand

Keystone taxa as drivers of microbiome structure and functioning
Microorganisms have a pivotal role in the functioning of ecosystems. Recent studies have shown that microbial communities harbour keystone taxa, which drive community composition and functionExpand

Core microbiomes for sustainable agroecosystems
In an era of ecosystem degradation and climate change, maximizing microbial functions in agroecosystems has become a prerequisite for the future of global agriculture. However, managing species-richExpand

Root exudate metabolites drive plant-soil feedbacks on growth and defense by shaping the rhizosphere microbiota
By changing soil properties, plants can modify their growth environment. Although the soil microbiota is known to play a key role in the resulting plant-soil feedbacks, the proximal mechanismsExpand

High-resolution community profiling of arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi.
Community analyses of arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi (AMF) using ribosomal small subunit (SSU) or internal transcribed spacer (ITS) DNA sequences often suffer from low resolution or coverage. WeExpand

Deciphering composition and function of the root microbiome of a legume plant
BackgroundDiverse assemblages of microbes colonize plant roots and collectively function as a microbiome. Earlier work has characterized the root microbiomes of numerous plant species, but littleExpand

Root microbiota dynamics of perennial Arabis alpina are dependent on soil residence time but independent of flowering time
Recent field and laboratory experiments with perennial Boechera stricta and annual Arabidopsis thaliana suggest that the root microbiota influences flowering time. Here we examined in long-termExpand
