An international team of researchers from the Max Planck Institute for Plant Breeding Research and the University of Ã arhus in Denmark have discovered that bacteria from the plant microbiota are adapted to their host species. In a newly published study, they show how root-associated bacteria have a competitive advantage when colonizing their native host, which allows them to invade an already established microbiota.
