Co-occurring winter stressors reduce duckweed survival and growth, as well as benefits from microbiomes, at AJB: Resilience to multiple stressors in an aquatic plant and its microbiome The image above shows one experimental replicate of duckweed responses to salt (NaCl) & benzotriazole (BZT) stressors, with (+) & without (-) their microbiome, for three separate genotypes of duckweed (named MT, KSR, and BH).


Duckweed host a much simpler microbiome, yet different microbiomes still shift host growth & traits, as in terrestrial plants, at Microbial Ecology: Mutualistic Outcomes Across Plant Populations, Microbes, and Environments in the Duckweed Lemna minor
