Overall aim: With my project I am to explore the global evolutionary biogeography of underground networks using experimental, geospatial, and statistical modelling approaches. I will identify how plant root microbiomes assemble and how this differs from domesticated and wild crops. Specifically plants will be stressed through nutrient deprivation as to shift microbiome structure.
