BACKGROUND AND AIMS: Biodegradation of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) is accelerated in the presence of plants, due to the stimulation of rhizosphere microbes by plant exudates (nonspecific enhancement). However, plants may also recruit specific microbial groups in response to PAH stress (specific enhancement). In this study, plant effects on the development of rhizosphere microbial commu ...
