Symbiotic associations between rhizobia and arbuscular mycorrhyzal fungi (AMF) influence changes in carbon allocation to plant roots and alter the exudation of signal molecules in their host plants. In this study, we examined the impacts of bacterial and fungal symbiotic associations on the variation in sugar exudation rates from plant roots, and in rhizosphere microbial community structure, by comparing four plant families (e.g., Asteraceae, Brassicaceae, Fabaceae, and Poaceae) with different… 

Exogenous arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi increase soil organic carbon and change microbial community in poplar rhizosphere

Arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi (AMF) increase soil organic carbon (SOC) deposition via secretion of glomalin-related soil protein (GRSP) and modulation of plant carbon partition. Two exogenous AMF

Phylogenetic signal of host plants in the bacterial and fungal root microbiomes of cultivated angiosperms.

Bacterial root microbiomes have significantly contributed to the functional divergence of angiosperms at higher taxonomic levels, suggesting the phylogenetic conservation of bacterialRoot microbiomes.

Impact of root-associated strains of three Paraburkholderia species on primary and secondary metabolism of Brassica oleracea

These results provide a comprehensive and integrated view of the temporal changes in plant metabolome associated with rhizobacteria-mediated plant growth promotion and induced resistance.

Belowground Microbial Crosstalk and Rhizosphere Biology

This chapter describes microbial communities in the rhizosphere and the associated biological processes these communities perform to sustain chemical communications in the roots of plant and microbes.

Microbial community composition is related to soil biological and chemical properties and bacterial wilt outbreak

The higher abundance of beneficial microbes are positively related the higher soil quality, including better plant growth, lower disease incidence, and higher nutrient contents, soil enzyme activities and soil pH.

Soil conditions on bacterial wilt disease affect bacterial and fungal assemblage in the rhizosphere

Natural soil has the ability to suppress the soil-borne pathogen to a certain extent, and the assemblage of soil microbiome plays a crucial role in maintaining such ability. Long-term monoculture

The rhizosphere bacterial community dynamics of the halophyte Lycium ruthenicum in different growth stages

The rhizosphere bacterial community diversity and composition were changing with growth stage, and great difference was found between senescence stage and previous two stages.

Effects of root exudation on the accumulation of Cd by Chenopodium ambrosioides L. and maize in intercropping systems

Pot experiments were carried out to study the effects of intercropping by Chenopodium ambrosioides L. and maize on the root exudates of soluble sugar and amino acids, in order to understand the



Root Exudates Regulate Soil Fungal Community Composition and Diversity

It is demonstrated that two model plant species are able to maintain resident soil fungal populations but unable to maintain nonresident soilfungal populations, mediated largely through root exudates.

Plant host habitat and root exudates shape soil bacterial community structure

There was also evidence for an indirect important impact of root exudates, through stimulation of SOM assimilation by a diverse bacterial community, which significantly shaped rhizosphere bacterial community structure.

Rhizosphere microbial community and its response to plant species and soil history

The results obtained in this study demonstrate clearly that plant species and soil type are two important factors affecting the structure of total bacterial, Pseudomonas and Bacillus community.

Rhizosphere bacterial communities associated with long-lived perennial prairie plants vary in diversity, composition, and structure.

The results suggest the potential for plant species to have significant impacts on a broad array of ecosystem functions (e.g., cycling of carbon, nitrogen sulfurs, metals, and trace elements) via their selective impacts on soil microbes.

Plant species richness, identity and productivity differentially influence key groups of microbes in grassland soils of contrasting fertility

The results suggest that AMF abundance in soil is more sensitive to changes in plant species diversity per se and plant species composition than are abundances of saprophytic microbes.

Biological costs and benefits to plant-microbe interactions in the rhizosphere.

Overall the general rhizosphere effect could help the plant by maintaining the recycling of nutrients, through the production of hormones, helping to provide resistance to microbial diseases and to aid tolerance to toxic compounds.

Determinants of root‐associated fungal communities within Asteraceae in a semi‐arid grassland

While plant–fungal interactions are important determinants of plant community assembly and ecosystem functioning, the processes underlying fungal community composition are poorly understood. Here, we

Differences in rhizosphere carbon-partitioning among plant species of different families

Rhizosphere respiration was positively correlated with the amount of 14C in the solution used to wash the roots on one hand, and root N concentration on the other hand, which led to a functional hierarchy between plant family groups of the overall rhizosphere activity.
