    Experimental and observational studies find contrasting responses of soil nutrients to climate change

    ZY Yuan et al.
    Experimental manipulations and environmental gradients, the two common-used approaches, are not at all comparable for predicting the impacts of climate change on nutrient cycling.

    A novel role for the root cap in phosphate uptake and homeostasis

    Satomi Kanno et al.
    Real-time 33P imaging combined with specific complementation of inorganic phosphate transport in the root cap reveals this tissue’s contribution to phosphate uptake.

    A receptor-like kinase mutant with absent endodermal diffusion barrier displays selective nutrient homeostasis defects

    Alexandre Pfister et al.
    The SCHENGEN3 protein is needed for the progression of isolated microdomains into a continuous band, which is necessary for the establishment of the major extracellular diffusion barrier in plant roots: the Casparian strip.

    Plant-associated CO2 mediates long-distance host location and foraging behaviour of a root herbivore

    Carla CM Arce et al.
    The larvae of the western corn rootworm use root-emitted CO2 to successfully locate the most suitable host plant.

    Rapid transporter regulation prevents substrate flow traffic jams in boron transport

    Naoyuki Sotta et al.
    To avoid internal traffic jams of nutrients that they absorb, plants need to swiftly regulate the transporters that take up those nutrients.

    Biodiversity mediates the effects of stressors but not nutrients on litter decomposition

    Léa Beaumelle et al.
    The consequences of real-world biodiversity change for ecosystem functioning depend on the type of global change driver and can be particularly significant when human activities decrease biodiversity.

    Algal-fungal symbiosis leads to photosynthetic mycelium

    Zhi-Yan Du et al.
    The capacity for symbiosis between photosynthetic microalgae and early diverging lineages fungi was demonstrated with microscopy and stable isotope exchange of carbon and nitrogen.

    Inter-species population dynamics enhance microbial horizontal gene transfer and spread of antibiotic resistance

    Robert M Cooper et al.
    Killing their neighbors allows bacteria to steal genes, including antibiotic resistance genes, which we observed under a microscope, quantified, modeled, and predicted potentially guiding strategies to combat it.

    Flower-like patterns in multi-species bacterial colonies

    Liyang Xiong et al.
    Mechanical interactions between bacterial species with different motility characteristics play an important role in spatial-temporal dynamics of multi-species bacterial colonies and can lead to formation of complex patterns.

    Novel mechanism of metabolic co-regulation coordinates the biosynthesis of secondary metabolites in Pseudomonas protegens

    Qing Yan et al.
    The production of two secondary metabolites is co-regulated in a bacterium via an intermediate in one pathway that is converted into signals to activate the second pathway.
