Media reviews

A useful introduction and companion for students and scientists studying the rhizosphere and its co-existing microorganisms. Since PCPR have a wide importance for plant growth their knowledge and management are crucial for optimal production of crop, food plants and even forest trees, it can be recommended for botanists, gardeners and foresters.
