Rodrigo Mendes, Paolina Garbeva and Jos M. Raaijmakers The rhizosphere microbiome: significance of plant beneficial, plant pathogenic, and human pathogenic microorganisms FEMS Microbiology Reviews 37
In this review, we focus on the frequency, diversity and activities of beneficial (‘the good’), plant pathogenic (‘the bad’) and human pathogenic (‘the ugly’) microorganisms in the rhizosphere and how they impact on health and disease. Specific attention is given to mechanisms involved in multitrophic interactions and chemical dialogues that occur in the rhizosphere. Finally, we discuss strategies to re–direct or re–shape the rhizosphere microbiome in favour of those microbes that are beneficial to plant growth and health.
