The rhizosphere represents a highly dynamic and complex interface for chemical, physical and biological interactions between plant and soil (Berg and Smalla, 2008). We report the adaptive strategy induced by the rhizosphere of three plants colonizing the high-elevated base-rich soils of Majella Massif (central Italy): Silene acaulis (L.), Dryas octopetala (L.), Helianthemum nummularium (L.)

The aims of the research were to investigate the effects of these species, distinguishing between rhizospheric and bulk soil, on: (i) the main chemical characteristics (ii) the microbial community structure, abundance and activity, and (iii) the nutrient absorption strategy.

Abstract

The rhizosphere represents a highly dynamic and complex interface for chemical, physical and biological interactions between plant and soil (Berg and Smalla, 2008). We report the adaptive strategy induced by the rhizosphere of three plants colonizing the high-elevated base-rich soils of Majella Massif (central Italy): Silene acaulis (L.), Dryas octopetala (L.), Helianthemum nummularium (L.) Mill. subsp. grandiflorum (Scop.). The aims of the research were to investigate the effects of these species, distinguishing between rhizospheric and bulk soil, on: (i) the main chemical characteristics (ii) the microbial community structure, abundance and activity, and (iii) the nutrient absorption strategy.
