- ... QUESTION: Plant community assembly has traditionally been viewed from the perspective of plant resource niches and competition and, more recently, facilitation in stressful environments. However, plants also engage in biotic interactions with neighbours and soil microbiome by producing chemically diverse root exudates. Root exudates have the potential to affect plant community productivity and com ...

- ... Plant populations can exhibit local adaptation to their abiotic environment, such as climate and soil properties, as well as biotic components such as the chemical signatures of dominant plant species and mutualistic and pathogenic microbial populations. While patterns of local adaptation in individual species are widely recorded, the importance of microevolutionary processes for plant community a ...
