Whispers in the dark - do earthworms talk to plants?

Funded by Natural Environment Research Council, this project spans the departments of Environment and Chemistry (Centre of Excellence in Mass Spectrometry).

By increasing levels of plant growth promoting compounds in the soil, earthworms could stimulate the production of more plant roots and also more soil micro-organisms feeding on the increased levels of plant secreted organic compounds that come from them. How earthworms increase the concentration of plant growth promoting compounds is not known and that is what researchers will seek to discover in this project.
