Microbiome analyses showed that fungi and bacteria cohabit in the plant environment. Separately they have been intensively studied for their impact on plant growth and health. Except some particular cases, little attention has however been paid to the intricacy of fungi-bacteria interactions. Fungal-bacterial interactions are, however, widespread in Nature, and encompass multiple interaction types from mutualism to parasitism. Using different models, we described some interactions between fungi and bacteria.
Besides highlighting the importance of multipartite microbial interactions, we discuss implications of our results for the development/application of microbial consortium-based bioprotectants and biostimulants as well as for the understanding of fungal pathogen-bacteria interactions.
