Microbiota (microorganism in the soil) help to fix nitrogen and improve the absorption of other vital nutrients for plants. Besides maintaining proper pH, etc., this is one of the main reasons why it is necessary to keep the soil when transplanting one plant to another area. Without the symbiosis between the plants' roots and the microorganisms, the plants cannot properly absorb nutrients needed for it to live.
In addition, insects and earthworms burrow through the soil, which aerate the soil, allowing for proper absorption of gases needed for the root systems (and the plants themselves) to live.
