Soil community conditioning by 8 Geranium species



In this study we examined communities of bacteria, protists, fungi and nematodes in the rhizospheres of 8 Geranium species. We grew the plants for 14 weeks in pots with soils from 5 different riverine grasslands close to Wageningen, The Netherlands, after which we extracted and amplified DNA using 16S and 18S rDNA primers, to explore variation in the microbiomes.
