13 January, 2017 - SLU

Infertile shrublands in Australia host an exceptionally high number of plant species. How the species can coexist while competing for limiting resources has puzzled ecologists for decades. Researchers, including two from SLU, suggest that part of the answer for such high plant diversity could reside in the myriad of root-associated organisms that live in soils. The study is published in Science.
