Bacterial communities differ between plant species and soil type, and differentially influence seedling establishment on serpentine soils

Authors: Alexandria N. Igwe and Rachel L. Vannette 

Root-associated microbial communities influence plant phenotype, growth and local abundance, yet the factors that structure these microbial communities are still poorly understood. California landscapes contain serpentine soils, which are nutrient-poor and high in heavy metals, and distinct from neighboring soils making them ideal for studying the factors that structure root microbiomes and their functions.
