The signaling pathways play an indispensable role and act as a connecting link between recognizing the stress molecules and generating an appropriate physiological and biochemical response. Recent studies using genomics and proteomics approach enabled decoding and understanding these signaling networks, which increased our knowledge regarding signaling pathways. This chapter offers a review of the most important bases of plant signaling pathways during various stresses.
