Yu et al. highlight root type identity and phosphate availability determine the community composition of colonizing fungi and shape the transcriptomic response of the maize root system.

Our findings suggest soil-nutrient dependent changes of functional niches within root systems, will provide new insights for understanding root-microbiota interactions of individual root types to environmental stimuli aiming to improve plant performance.
