Simplified diagram of full experimental design. Microbes were exposed to selective dry or wet conditions for 3 plant generations, under 3 plant conditioning treatments used: (a) historically grown with Brassica rapa, (b) historically grown without plants, and (c) historically grown with Bouteloua curtipendula. Following this selection, microbial communities were inoculated onto Brassica rapa plants under wet or dry conditions.
