Comments "[Researchers] compared [their] results with a selection of reports in the literature of roots exposed to either bacteria native to the growth medium, or to bacteria inoculated onto the seed or the medium (Table 4). [They] converted [their] units of bacteria per rhizosphere volume to compare with other studies despite the differences that arise from using root or soil weights to express bacteria (Duineveld and van Veen, 1999)."
