This is very interesting and I wonder if you do this also in terms of soil microbiota.
Thank you for your interest. So one of the first artificial ecosystem level selection experiments (Swenson et al 2000, PNAS) was selecting for soil ecosystems that promoted above-ground plant biomass. We definitely foresee the new strategies we have proposed here as potentially applicable to this context, even though there are many added complexities beyond what we explicitly modelled.
