Rhizosphere interactions

Life below ground

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

The interface between roots and soil is a region with high interaction among a myriad of organisms that affect biogeochemical cycles, plant growth, and stress tolerance. Similarly chemical compounds secreted within the rhizosphere act as attractants to microorganisms. Due to its dynamic nature and complexity, understanding rhizospheric biology and activity is essential in ensuring improved plant function and productivity within an ecosystem. Sustainable agricultural practices are dependent on studies conducted with regards to plant-microbe interactions in the rhizosphere. This chapter is an exposition of rhizospheric interactions spanning the chemistry of exudates and signals that contribute towards the complexity of the rhizosphere. The information derived from recent studies and the utilization of current technological platforms will enable us to explore and gather more information at the plant and microbiome level.
