Abstract

Climate change is expected to increase future abiotic stresses on ecosystems through extreme weather events. Altered rainfall patterns can directly affect soil microbes and plant species. It is unknown how plant communities will respond to changes in soil microbial community induced by extreme drought and rainfall events. It has been suggested that exotic invasive plants species are more resistant to extreme drought and rainfall events than native plant species. Here, we tested the hypothesis that exotic plant species will become more dominant under extreme drought and rainfall events as a consequence of changes in soil microbial communities.
