Editorial : Rhizosphere Spatiotemporal Organisation
Formation of the rhizosphere, interface between living plant roots and soil, leads to changes in
soil properties, nutrient and water distribution and biogeochemical cycling, and to a selection of
unique populations of microorganisms and invertebrates. Dynamic feedback processes between
the plant, the soil and the biota govern rhizosphere formation. The Frontiers Research Topic
on “Rhizosphere Spatiotemporal Organization” presents contributions which aim to advance our
understanding of rhizosphere processes. All of the six articles took the challenge to elaborate on the
dynamic interactions and feedback processes in both spatial and temporal contexts.
