Microbial communities always play a fundamental role in plant and soil ecosystems, which often refers to organic matter transformation and in situ aeration. Fungal diversity is abundant, but historically not enough attention has been paid to this area of research, thus new taxa or cryptic species could be found through comprehensive evaluation. Different pathogens (fungi and bacteria) cause many plant diseases that have a limited agricultural economic impact in some regions of the world, but some mechanisms are still unclear. Biological control of pests has always been an active field of plant protection. New discoveries in these research areas will be considered in this Research Topic.

For this Research Topic about microbial communities, we would like to invite the reviews and original research papers about the latest microbial research within this field focusing on microbial communities, diversity, pathogens and biological control. The response of microbial communities to plants and in situ aeration, the diversity of arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi, whole genome sequencing, whole transcription sequencing, transcriptional changes, genetic causes of the non- or pathogenic strains, molecular-target structures of pesticides and biological control will be considered. We also will consider research regarding important diseases or pathogens.

This Research Topic will focus on Plants and Microbial communities: Diversity, Pathogens and Biological Control including:

• Plant diseases and pest control
• Genome sequencing of plant pathogens
• Microbial community and species diversity
• Biological control
• Interactions of microbes
• Important diseases or pathogens
• Fungal taxonomy and phylogeny


Keywords: plant diseases, plant pathogens, biological control, soil ecosystems


Important Note: All contributions to this Research Topic must be within the scope of the section and journal to which they are submitted, as defined in their mission statements. Frontiers reserves the right to guide an out-of-scope manuscript to a more suitable section or journal at any stage of peer review.
