Underneath our feet, or more precisely, the feet of plants is a small world that allows our larger world to survive. The soil immediately surrounding plant roots, the rhizosphere, is busy with the interactions of plants, microorganisms and stable soil organic matter. The result is plant growth and nutrition on the plus side along with microbial infections on the minus. This edition continues to explain the multidisciplinary nature of the rhizosphere, which touches upon soil science, agronomy, plant nutrition and physiology, microbiology and biochemistry. In its 14 chapters, all completely updated, it describes the compounds released by plants, the rhizodeposition and microbial populations, nutrient transformation, nutrients as regulators of root morphology and architecture, the function of siderophores and fungi, molecular biology and ecology, control of plant pathogens, root-root and root-microbe chemical signals, methodological approaches to the study of carbon flow, gene flow, and models of the rhizosphere.
