The leading theme for the Rhizosphere 4 conference is “Stretching the Interface of Life".
The rhizosphere is the true hot spot of belowground interactions with strong feedbacks between plants, soil biota and the soil environment.

The Rhizosphere conference has been an established name for almost ten years now. The international initiators of the Rhizosphere meetings started the successful series with the celebration of the 100-years anniversary of the rhizosphere concept in 2004 in Munich, followed by the 2007 and 2011 meetings in Montpellier and Perth respectively.
