Plants are continuously exposed to all kinds of water stress such as drought and salinity. In order to survive and adapt, they have developed survival strategies that have been well studied, but little is known about the early mechanisms by which the osmotic stress is perceived and transduced into these responses. During the last few years, however, a variety of reports suggest that specific lipid and MAPK pathways are involved. This review briefly summarises them and presents a model showing that osmotic stress is transmitted by multiple signalling pathways. © 2001 Federation of European Biochemical Societies.
