Teosinte phenotypes that differ from low elevation, warm sites (later flowering, larger root mass) to high elevation, cold sites (early flowering, small roots) are shifted by root microbes. More interesting yet, microbes shift the genetic variation and covariation between traits, potentially altering plant responses to selection pressures, e.g. climate change.
