[edit] Introduction

The rizosphere refers to the region of soil near plant roots. Compared to the rest of soil, this area is relatively luxurious- nutrients are more plentiful and bacteria abound. Sylvia et al compare the rizosphere to an oasis. (Others in this group, please add more!)

Describe briefly the process you will address and the significance of soil microorganisms in the process (what functions do they perform?). [edit] Process - key points Populations of Soil Fauna Microflora Movement Plant-Microbe Interactions Describe the process, using as many sections/subsections as you require. Look at the list of other topics. Which involve processes similar to yours? Create links where relevant.

[edit] Seed and root environment

Info to be added about seed and root environment here

[edit] Plant-derived compounds


[edit] innoculations

Other members of my group- I just chose three topics because I lost the list or never wrote it down. I'm not trying to set this in stone, I can reserach whatever, just let me know)

[edit] Subsection 2 [edit] Key Microorganisms in ______

Identify and describe some microorganisms involved. Do they already have their own microbewiki pages? Add links. Create at least one page for a microbe relevant to your topic. Template will appear soon. [edit] Section 3

Topic of your choice. [edit] Current Research
