The soil microbial community alters patterns of selection on flowering time and fitness‐related traits in Ipomoea purpurea

Lindsay Chaney & Regina S. Baucom
Premise of the study Plant flowering time plays an important role in plant fitness and thus evolutionary processes. Soil microbial communities are diverse and have a large impact, both positive and negative, on the host plant. However, owing to few available studies, how the soil microbial community may influence the evolutionary response of plant populations is not well understood. Here we sought to uncover if below-ground microbial communities act as an agent of selection on...
