Rhizosphere interactions: the root microbiome.

Plants are never fully separate from other organisms. In addition to their diverse relationships with fungi, plants also interact with bacteria and other organisms that alter the soil environment of roots and influence each other. How can we understand this "superorganism"? What approaches allow us to relate diversity with function and to model the interactions?
