Data from: Soil microbial species loss affects plant biomass and survival of an introduced bacterial strain, but not inducible plant defences

Viola Kurm, Wim H. Van Der Putten, Ana Pineda & W.H. Gera Hol
- Background and Aims: Plant growth-promoting rhizobacteria (PGPR) strains can influence plant-insect interactions. However, little is known about the effect of changes in the soil bacterial community in general and especially the loss of rare soil microbes on these interactions. Here, the influence of rare soil microbe-reduction on induced systemic resistance (ISR) in a wild ecotype of Arabidopsis thaliana against the aphid Myzus persicae was investigated. - Methods: To create a gradient of microbial abundances,...
