Plant rhizosphere is the soil nearest to the plant root system where roots release large quantity of metabolites from living root hairs or fibrous root systems. These metabolites act as chemical signals for motile bacteria to move to the root surface but also represent the main nutrient sources available to support growth and persistence in the rhizosphere. Some of the microbes that inhabit this area are bacteria that are able to colonize very efficiently the roots or the rhizosphere soil of crop plants.

Soil erosion due to underground leakage is a major factor causing land degradation in karst regions. Rhizosphere effects REs on soil anti-erodibility SAE can alleviate this type of soil erosion by improving soil physical processes such as aggregate stability.

Root Exudates Induce Soil Macroaggregation Facilitated by Fungi in Subsoil

Root exudation is an important process determining plant interactions with the soil environment. Many studies have linked this process to soil nutrient mobilization. Yet, it remains unresolved how exudation is controlled and how exactly and under what circumstances plants benefit from exudation. The majority of root exudates including primary metabolites sugars, amino acids, and organic acids are believed to be passively lost from the root and used by rhizosphere-dwelling microbes. In this review, we synthetize recent advances in ecology and plant biology to explain and propose mechanisms by which root exudation of primary metabolites is controlled, and what role their exudation plays in plant nutrient acquisition strategies.

The two vital properties of soil rhizosphere are rootexudates and soil microbes. Root exudates are the chemical compounds that aresecreted by roots and act as a source of food for soil microbes and play an important rolein soil microbe and plant interaction.

An interspecific variation in rhizosphere effects on soil anti-erodibility

In this study, the root exudates of wetland plants, Pistia stratiotes , black algae , and Cyperus alternifolius , exposed to six phosphorus concentration gradients 0, 0. The experimental seedlings were cultivated in Hoagland solutions, which were then extracted, decompressed, and concentrated with CH 2 Cl 2 ; subsequently, a gas chromatography-mass spectrometry GC-MS analysis was performed to study the root exudates effects under different phosphorus concentrations. Results showed the existence of several organic compounds, such as alkanes, esters, alcohols, amines, benzene, and acids phthalic acid, cycloheptasiloxane, benzoic acid, and cyclopentasiloxane in the root exudates of the wetland plants. The relative contents of phthalate, benzene dicarboxylic acid, and cyclohexasiloxane in the root exudates first increased, and then decreased, with the change in phosphorus concentration.

Rhizosphere interactions: root exudates, microbes, and microbial communities

Subsoils are known to harbor large amounts of soil organic carbon SOC and may represent key global carbon C sinks given appropriate management. Although rhizodeposition is a major input pathway of organic matter to subsoils, little knowledge exists on C dynamics, particularly stabilization mechanisms, such as soil aggregation, in the rhizosphere of different soil depths. The aim of this study was to investigate the influence of natural and elevated root exudation on C allocation and aggregation in the topsoil and subsoil of a mature European beech Fagus sylvatica L. We experimentally added model root exudates to soil at two different concentrations using artificial roots and analyzed how these affect SOC, nitrogen, microbial community composition, and size distribution of water-stable aggregates. Based on the experimental data, a mathematical model was developed to describe the spatial distribution of the formation of soil aggregates and their binding strength. Our results demonstrate that greater exudate additions affect the microbial community composition in favor of fungi which promote the formation of macroaggregates.

Root exudates represent an important source of nutrients for microorganisms in the rhizosphere and seem to participate in early colonization inducing chemotactic responses of rhizospheric bacteria. We characterized the root exudates collected from rice plantlets cultured under hydroponic conditions and assessed their effects on the chemotaxis of two strains of endophytic bacteria, Corynebacterium flavescens and Bacillus pumilus , collected from the rice rhizosphere. We compared these chemotactic effects on endophytic bacteria with those on two strains of plant-growth-promoting bacteria, Azospirillum brasilense isolated from the corn rhizosphere and Bacillus sp. The root exudates were collected at different time intervals. The highest concentration and diversity of amino acids and carbohydrates were found during the first 2 weeks after seeding.
