- Predator-prey chemical warfare determines the expression of biocontrol genes by rhizosphere-associated Pseudomonas fluorescensAlexandre Jousset
Darmstadt University of Technology, Institute of Zoology, Schnittspahnstr 3, D 64287 Darmstadt, Germany
Appl Environ Microbiol 76:5263-8. 2010..The results indicate that predator-prey interactions are a determinant of toxin production by rhizosphere P. fluorescens and may have an impact on its biocontrol potential...
- Plants respond to pathogen infection by enhancing the antifungal gene expression of root-associated bacteriaAlexandre Jousset
Georg August University, Gottingen, Germany
Mol Plant Microbe Interact 24:352-8. 2011..Tripartite interactions among plants, pathogens, and bacteria appear as a novel determinant of plant response to root pathogens...
- Intraspecific genotypic richness and relatedness predict the invasibility of microbial communitiesAlexandre Jousset
Georg August University Gottingen, JF Blumenbach Institute of Zoology and Anthropology, Gottingen, Germany
ISME J 5:1108-14. 2011....
- Genotypic richness and dissimilarity opposingly affect ecosystem functioningA Jousset
J F Blumenbach Institute of Zoology and Anthropology, Georg August University Gottingen, Berliner Straße 28, 37073 Gottingen, Germany
Ecol Lett 14:537-45. 2011....
- Increasing antagonistic interactions cause bacterial communities to collapse at high diversityJoachim Becker
J F Blumenbach Institute for Zoology and Anthropology, Georg August University Gottingen, Berliner Str 28, 37073 Gottingen, Germany
Ecol Lett 15:468-74. 2012..Interference competition may thus be an additional key for predicting the dynamics and performance of natural assemblages and needs to be implemented in future biodiversity models...
- Predators promote defence of rhizosphere bacterial populations by selective feeding on non-toxic cheatersAlexandre Jousset
Institute of Zoology, Darmstadt University of Technology, Darmstadt, Germany
ISME J 3:666-74. 2009..Therefore, predators not only regulate population dynamics of soil bacteria but also structure the genetic and phenotypic constitution of bacterial communities...
- Bacterial diversity stabilizes community productivityNico Eisenhauer
Georg August University Gottingen, J F Blumenbach Institute of Zoology and Anthropology, Gottingen, Germany
PLoS ONE 7:e34517. 2012....
- Secondary metabolites of Pseudomonas fluorescens CHA0 drive complex non-trophic interactions with bacterivorous nematodesNina Neidig
J F Blumenbach Institute of Zoology and Anthropology, Georg August University Gottingen, Berliner Str 28, 37073 Gottingen, Germany
Microb Ecol 61:853-9. 2011..The results suggest that bacterial secondary metabolites responsible for the suppression of plant pathogens strongly inhibit bacterivorous nematodes and thus likely contribute to the resistance of bacteria against predators in soil...
- Ecological and evolutive implications of bacterial defences against predatorsAlexandre Jousset
Georg August University Gottingen, JF Blumenbach Institute of Zoology and Anthropology, Animal Ecology, Berliner Str 28, 37073 Gottingen, Germany
Environ Microbiol 14:1830-43. 2012..Finally I present some implications of bacterial defence mechanisms for ecosystem services provided by microbial communities, such as nutrient cycling, virulence and the biological control of plant diseases...
