Soils are the product of the activities of plants, which supply organic matter and play a pivotal role in weathering rocks and minerals. Many plant species have a distinct ecological amplitude that shows restriction to specific soil types. In the numerous interactions between plants and soil, microorganisms also play a key role. Here we review the existing literature on interactions between plants, microorganisms and soils, and include considerations of evolutionary time scales, where possible… 
Soil–Microbes–Plants: Interactions and Ecological Diversity
The microbially based perception for the ecology of plants promises to contribute to the understanding of long-standing issues in ecology and to disclose new areas of future investigation.
Plant Root Secretions and Their Interactions with Neighbors
The combination of techniques and the continuous development of new techniques in the field of rhizosphere biology coupled with systems approach will allow to elucidate these complex interactions under field conditions to improve the plant growth at species and community level.
Biochemical Processes of Rhizobacteria and their Application in Biotechnology
The rhizosphere is a multiple interface between soils, plant roots, microbes and fauna, where different biological components interact strongly. Rhizosphere interactions are based on complex
Biotic environment of the arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi in soil
Arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi (AMF) inhabit two different, highly contrasting kinds of environment: root cortex and soil. Roots inner volume offers rather stable conditions in terms of physics,
Current Scenario of Root Exudate–Mediated Plant-Microbe Interaction and Promotion of Plant Growth
This chapter is focussed on recent advancements in the utilization of root exudates in plant-microbe interactions to enhance plant growth promotion.
Manipulating the soil microbiome to increase soil health and plant fertility
Increasing evidence indicates that plants can shape the soil microbiome through the secretion of root exudates, which could have far-reaching effects on plant health and crop productivity.
Biotic interactions in the rhizosphere in relation to plant and soil nutrient dynamics
The rhizosphere is the interface between roots and the soil where nutrient absorption for plant growth in agroecosystems is facilitated. An abundant and diverse rhizosphere biome is involved in
The role of locally adapted mycorrhizas and rhizobacteria in plant–soil feedback systems
The importance of local adaptation among plants and root-associated fungi and bacteria is discussed and how inclusion of the optimal resource allocation (OA) model can help predict the direction and outcome of PSFs under environmental change is shown.


Rhizodeposition of organic C by plants: mechanisms and controls
During their life, plant roots release organic compounds in their surrounding environment. This process, named rhizodeposition, is of ecological importance because (1) it is a loss of reduced C for
It is suggested that positive feedback between plants and soil microbes plays a central role in early successional communities, while negative feedback contributes both to species replacements and to diversification in later successional Communities.
The rhizosphere: a playground and battlefield for soilborne pathogens and beneficial microorganisms
This review focuses on the population dynamics and activity of soilborne pathogens and beneficial microorganisms, and mechanisms involved in the tripartite interactions between beneficialmicroorganisms, pathogens and the plant.
Protozoa and plant growth: the microbial loop in soil revisited.
Because the regulation of root architecture is a key determinant of nutrient- and water-use efficiency in plants, protozoa provide a model system that may considerably advance the understanding of the mechanisms underlying plant growth and community composition.
Plant and mycorrhizal regulation of rhizodeposition.
Evidence is brought together to show that roots can directly regulate most aspects of rhizosphere C flow either by regulating the exudation process itself or by directly regulating the recapture of exudates from soil.
Rhizosphere: A new frontier for soil biogeochemistry
Importance of rhizodeposition in the coupling of plant and microbial productivity
This review considers the processes by which plants can influence the cycling of nutrients in soil, and in particular the importance of organic inputs from roots in driving microbially mediated transformations of N.
Rhizosphere fauna: the functional and structural diversity of intimate interactions of soil fauna with plant roots
In this review, areas of recent exciting progress are highlighted and the black boxes that still need to be illuminated by rhizosphere zoologists and ecologists are pointed out.
Microbially Mediated Increases in Plant-Available Phosphorus
Prospects for using soil microorganisms to improve the acquisition of phosphorus by plants
Promotion of growth of plants in soil, as a consequence of microbial inoculation, may not necessarily be associated with characteristics such as P solubilization, which are manifest under laboratory conditions.
