Microbial communities of desert plants Targeted loci environmental



Deserts in Saudi Arabia are one of the most hostile places for plant growth. However, desert plants can still grow under these extreme conditions and might reveal interesting survival strategies. In this study, we examined the soil, rhizosphere and endosphere microbiome of four native desert plants, Tribulus terrestris, Zygophyllum simplex, Panicum turgidum and Euphorbia granulate, at two sites, Midwest (Al Wahbah) and Southwest (Jizan) of Saudi Arabia, with different soil physicochemical properties.
