Keystone microbial species have driven eco-evolutionary processes since the origin of life. However, due to our inability to detect the majority of microbiota, members of diverse microbial communities of fungi, bacteria and viruses have largely been ignored as keystone species in past literature. Here we tested whether heritable Epichloë species of pooidae grasses modulate microbiota of their shared host plant.

Tissue-Specific Dynamics in the Endophytic Bacterial Communities in Arctic Pioneer Plant Oxyria digyna Given, Cindy; Häikiö, Elina; Kumar, Manoj; Nissinen, Riitta (Frontiers Media, 2020)The rapid developments in the next-generation sequencing methods in the recent years have provided a wealth of information on the community structures and functions of endophytic bacteria. However, the assembly processes ...
Strong Regionality and Dominance of Anaerobic Bacterial Taxa Characterize Diazotrophic Bacterial Communities of the Arcto-Alpine Plant Species Oxyria digyna and Saxifraga oppositifolia Gopala Krishnan, Manoj Kumar; van Elsas, Jan Dirk; Nissinen, Riitta (Frontiers Research Foundation, 2017)Arctic and alpine biomes are most often strongly nitrogen-limited, and hence biological nitrogen fixation is a strong driver of these ecosystems. Both biomes are characterized by low temperatures and short growing seasons, ...
Saikkonen, Kari; Nissinen, Riitta; Helander, Marjo (Frontiers Media, 2020)Microbes have driven eco-evolutionary adaptations organizing biodiversity from the origin of life. They are ubiquitous and abundant, facilitating the biochemical processes that make Earth habitable and shape ecosystem ...
New insight to the role of microbes in the methane exchange in trees : evidence from metagenomic sequencing Putkinen, Anuliina; Siljanen, Henri M.P.; Laihonen, Antti; Paasisalo, Inga; Porkka, Kaija; Tiirola, Marja; Haikarainen, Iikka; Tenhovirta, Salla; Pihlatie, Mari (Wiley-Blackwell, 2021)Methane (CH4) exchange in tree stems and canopies and the processes involved are among the least understood components of the global CH4 cycle. Recent studies have focused on quantifying tree stems as sources of CH4 and ...
Plants Assemble Species Specific Bacterial Communities From Common Core Taxa in Three Arcto-Alpine Climate Zones Gopala Krishnan, Manoj Kumar; Brader, Günter; Sessitsch, Angela; Mäki, Anita; Elsas, Jan Dirk Van; Nissinen, Riitta (Frontiers Research Foundation, 2017)Evidence for the pivotal role of plant-associated bacteria to plant health and productivity has accumulated rapidly in the last years. However, key questions related to what drives plant bacteriomes remain unanswered, ...
