Abstract:

Global warming and climate change are the most prominent issues of the current environmental scenario. These problems arise due to a higher concentration of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere which exerts a warming effect. Although much attention has been given to anthropogenic sources and impacts of these gases, the significance and implications of microorganisms have remained neglected. The present review brings to light this over looked aspect of the causes of climate change. It was then found that microbes play a major role in climate change. Thus, microbes should never be deprived of their due importance in climate change models as well as discussions on the matter. The major feedback response mechanism for climate change by changing their microbial community structure and composition solve this kind of environmental problem, simply using nutrient cycling processes and stimulating their functional genetic material for degrading and eliminating chemicals or gasses which leads to global warming. In addition, the review also identified the necessity of proper research in this aspect as there is a lack of adequate understanding of this facet of climate change. It is well known that beneficial plant associated microorganisms may stimulate plant growth and enhance resistance to disease and abiotic stresses. The effects of climate change factors such as elevated CO2, drought and raising the temperature on beneficial plant microorganism interactions are being explored to an increasing extent. Overall, this review shows that plant associated microorganisms are an important factor influencing the response of plants to climate change.
