The root microbiome plays a key role that can influence host plant growth and abiotic stress. While there has been extensive characterization of community structure, spatial compartmentalization, and the impact of drought stresses on the root microbiome in rice and other plants, there is relatively little known about the differences in root microbiome among rice ecotypes in natural upland and lowland fields. Herein, we used two rice ecotypes, upland and irrigated ecotype rice (two Indica and two Japonica genotypes), as a model to explore the responses of the root microbiome under different environmental conditions.
