In particular, we studied how the abundance of bacteria and nirS-type denitrifiers changes in the rhizosphere and rhizoplane of three emergent freshwater macrophytes (Juncus effusus, Peltandra virginica, and Typha latifolia) in two tidal freshwater wetlands.
chlamydosporia fungus can colonize the rhizoplane and the internal tissues of the roots of some plants, in the manner of an endophyte (BORDALLO et al., 2002; ESCUDERO; LOPEZ-LLORCA, 2012; MACIA-VICENTE et al., 2009b; MONFORT et al., 2005).
Antibiotics also function to create desirable ecological balances of soil organisms on the root surface (rhizoplane) and in soil near the root (rhizosphere).
The rhizosphere is the volume of soil surrounding and under the influence of plant roots and the rhizoplane is the plant root surfaces and strongly adhering soil particles [7].
[1] reported that inoculation effects of Rhizobium strain (isolated from rhizoplane of sunflower roots) on sunflower seeds, which resulted in enhance in shoot and root dry weight under drought stress and non-stressed condition.

ABSTRACT: Bacteria present in the rhizosphere and rhizoplane of okro (Hibiscus esculentus) were isolated and identified.
Distance to which exudation from their root system can migrate depends on the intensity of activity, and it is characterized [1] to have three components [2]; rhizoplane, (surface of the root immediately formed), rhizosphere (the soil volume surrounding the rhizoplane that is immediately affected by root activity) and bulk soil (it is not directly affected by living roots).
Microbiological modification of rhizosphere and rhizoplane are associated with fungi and bacteria, which enhance P availability and uptake [25].
