Microbial populations and activities in the rhizoplane
of rock-weathering desert plants.
The rhizosphere is the soil volume surrounding the rhizoplane
, and the term was first coined by Hiltner in 1904 (10).
Few studies have been conducted on roses where bacteria were isolated from the rhizoplane
and the rhizosphere of R.
chlamydosporia fungus can colonize the rhizoplane
and the internal tissues of the roots of some plants, in the manner of an endophyte (BORDALLO et al.
The rhizosphere is the volume of soil surrounding and under the influence of plant roots and the rhizoplane
is the plant root surfaces and strongly adhering soil particles .
1] reported that inoculation effects of Rhizobium strain (isolated from rhizoplane
of sunflower roots) on sunflower seeds, which resulted in enhance in shoot and root dry weight under drought stress and non-stressed condition.
Selective influence on populations of rhizosphere or rhizoplane
bacteria and actinomycetes by mycorrhizas formed by Glomus fasciculatum.
ABSTRACT: Bacteria present in the rhizosphere and rhizoplane
of okro (Hibiscus esculentus) were isolated and identified.
Distance to which exudation from their root system can migrate depends on the intensity of activity, and it is characterized  to have three components ; rhizoplane
, (surface of the root immediately formed), rhizosphere (the soil volume surrounding the rhizoplane
that is immediately affected by root activity) and bulk soil (it is not directly affected by living roots).
Microbiological modification of rhizosphere and rhizoplane
are associated with fungi and bacteria, which enhance P availability and uptake .
