Aboveground plant performance is strongly influenced by belowground microorganisms, some of which are pathogenic and have negative effects, while others, such as nitrogen-fixing bacteria and arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi, usually have positive effects. Recent research revealed that belowground interactions between plants and functionally distinct groups of microorganisms cascade up to aboveground plant associates such as herbivores and their natural enemies. However, while functionally distinct… Expand
Arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi (AMF) influences growth and insect community dynamics in Sorghum-sudangrass (Sorghum x drummondii)
TLDR
Field and lab data show that Arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi can not only positively influence plant growth traits but can also provide defenses against herbivores by selectively attracting beneficial insects and repelling Herbivores, with implications for sustainable pest management strategies. Expand
Cascading effects of nitrogen, rhizobia and parasitism via a host plant
TLDR
Rhizobia can improve the performance of legumes by providing them with nitrogen (N) and defense compounds, thereby reducing negative impacts of parasitism, and parasitic plants can benefit from rhizobia and N addition via improved host plant growth. Expand
The Beneficial Endophytic Fungus Fusarium solani Strain K Alters Tomato Responses Against Spider Mites to the Benefit of the Plant
TLDR
Evidence is found that FsK, a beneficial endophytic fungal strain isolated from the roots of tomato plants grown on suppressive compost, affects both direct and indirect tomato defenses against spider mites and may offer the opportunity for the development of a novel tool for spider mite control. Expand
Beneficial Soil Microbiota as Mediators of the Plant Defensive Phenotype and Aboveground Plant-Herbivore Interactions
TLDR
Understanding of the impact of plant-associated microbial mutualists in food webs is critical to elucidate their functional role in ecosystems and a lack of integration of natural complexity and evolutionary context into concepts and studies of microbe-plant-herbivore interactions is limited. Expand
Effects of Nitroxin and arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi on the agro-physiological traits and grain yield of sorghum (Sorghum bicolor L.) under drought stress conditions
TLDR
The results of this experiment show that Nitroxin and AMF bio-fertilizers can mitigate the negative effects of stress on plants in drought stress conditions by increasing the amount of photosynthetic pigments, soluble proteins and osmotic regulation and decreasing electrolyte leakage. Expand
Inoculation with Native Actinobacteria May Improve Desert Plant Growth and Survival with Potential Use for Restoration Practices.
TLDR
Native Actinobacteria studied may increase plant species survival and growth by improving their nutritional status, suggesting their potential to facilitate vegetation establishment and, therefore, being good candidates for restoration practices. Expand
The Interaction between Rice Genotype and Magnaporthe oryzae Regulates the Assembly of Rice Root-Associated Microbiota
TLDR
It is proposed that the host genotype and inoculation pattern of M. oryzae played dominant roles in determining the microbial community assemblage in the root endosphere and rhizosphere soils of the rice cultivar Nipponbare when infected with the filamentous fungus. Expand
Soil Zn Fertilization and Inoculation with Arbuscular Mycorrhizal Fungus and Azotobacter Chroococcum Bacteria Affect the Cd Concentration and Zn Bioavailability in Bread Wheat Grown in a Cd-spiked Soil
ABSTRACT Wheat is the main staple crop in Iran and thus of critical importance in human nutrition. This study was conducted to investigate the effect of individual and co-inoculation of azotobacterExpand
Third-party mutualists have contrasting effects on host invasion under the enemy-release and biotic-resistance hypotheses
TLDR
It was much more difficult for plants to invade under the ERH but that beneficial microbes increase the probability of plant survival in a novel range under both hypotheses, and this model is the first to use tripartite interactions to explore novel species introductions. Expand
Effects of Rhizobium inoculation and magnesium application on growth and nodulation of soybean (Glycine max L.)
Abstract Magnesium (Mg) deficiency is one of the major nutritional problems in tropic and subtropic areas, where the most soils are acidic. In this study, the effects of Mg application andExpand

Arbuscular mycorrhizal symbiosis increases host plant acceptance and population growth rates of the two-spotted spider mite Tetranychus urticae
TLDR
This is the first study documenting the effect of AM symbiosis on the population growth rates of a herbivore, tracking the changes in life history characteristics throughout the life cycle. Expand
Dual benefit from a belowground symbiosis: nitrogen fixing rhizobia promote growth and defense against a specialist herbivore in a cyanogenic plant
TLDR
This study showed that the rhizobial symbiosis not only promotes plant growth but also improves plant defense and resistance against herbivores, and supports the view that the fitness benefit of root symbioses includes defence mechanisms and thus extends beyond the promotion of plant growth. Expand
Support from the underground: Induced plant resistance depends on arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi
TLDR
The results indicate that induction interacts with the allocation of the additional resources provided by mycorrhization towards plant growth and plant resistance, suggesting that my Corrhiza may play an important but hitherto overlooked role in the induction of plant resistance against herbivores. Expand
Mycorrhiza-induced trophic cascade enhances fitness and population growth of an acarine predator
TLDR
It is hypothesized that a bottom-up trophic cascade may counteract the apparent negative effects of mycorrhizal symbiosis when promoting herbivory by promoting the predation of herbivores due to improved prey quality. Expand
Identity and combinations of arbuscular mycorrhizal fungal isolates influence plant resistance and insect preference
TLDR
It was found that AMF influenced plant resistance in an AMF genotype‐specific manner, and some AMF inoculations decreased insect performance, and insects preferentially chose to feed more on leaves originating from non‐mycorrhizal plants; but also that in a whole plant bioassay, insects preferentialially chose the biggest plant, regardless of their mycorrhIZal status. Expand
Plant Dependence on Rhizobia for Nitrogen Influences Induced Plant Defenses and Herbivore Performance
TLDR
The results suggest that rhizobia association can affect plant nutritional quality and the induction of defense signaling pathways and that these effects may influence herbivore feeding preferences and performance—though such effects may vary considerably for different classes of herbivores. Expand
Two-way plant mediated interactions between root-associated microbes and insects: from ecology to mechanisms
TLDR
This review explores how colonization by either single non-pathogenic microbe species or a community of such microbes belowground affects plant growth and defense and how this affects the interactions of plants with aboveground insects at different trophic levels and the role of phytohormones is discussed. Expand
Symbiotic soil microorganisms as players in aboveground plant-herbivore interactions - the role of rhizobia.
TLDR
Evidence is provided that the additional nitrogen provided by the rhizobia may be used for the production of nitrogen-based defence compounds, thereby counteracting positive effects on the performance of chewing herbivores and the phloem-sucking aphid Myzus persicae. Expand
Interactions between arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi and bacteria and their potential for stimulating plant growth.
TLDR
This review summarizes what is known to date within the present field, attempts to identify promising lines of future research, and concludes that optimized combinations of microorganisms can be applied as effective inoculants within sustainable crop production systems. Expand
