Going back to the roots: the microbial ecology of the rhizosphere

  title={Going back to the roots: the microbial ecology of the rhizosphere},
  author={Laurent Philippot and Jos M. Raaijmakers and Philippe Lemanceau and Wim H. van der Putten},
  journal={Nature Reviews Microbiology},
The rhizosphere is the interface between plant roots and soil where interactions among a myriad of microorganisms and invertebrates affect biogeochemical cycling, plant growth and tolerance to biotic and abiotic stress. The rhizosphere is intriguingly complex and dynamic, and understanding its ecology and evolution is key to enhancing plant productivity and ecosystem functioning. Novel insights into key factors and evolutionary processes shaping the rhizosphere microbiome will greatly benefit… CONTINUE READING
