Plants have co-evolved with soil microbes over hundreds of millions of years. When bacteria colonized the Earth and transformed the atmosphere over three billion years ago, they created conditions that made it possible for soil fungi to evolve (approximately 900 millions of years ago). Together, bacteria and fungi have shaped Earth’s soil structure and created habitable conditions for the evolution of plants around 700 millions of years ago.
