Exploring Phytobiomes

The Phytobiome is all of the organisms in, on, and around plants, and encompasses the many organisms that influence or are influenced by the plant or the plant environment, including the soil. It consists of other plants, animals (insects and nematodes), a wide diversity of microbes (viruses, bacteria, fungi, slime-molds and algae), the plant microbiome, and the environment. In this workshop, talks will cover various aspects of research into understanding complete phytobiomes. The workshop will wrap up with a presentation on the recently developed roadmap for phytobiomes research and the new International Phytobiomes Consortium.
