It is well known that salicylic acid (SA) is a natural signaling molecule involved in plant defense response against pathogen infection. In addition to plant responses to biological enermies, evidence on the involvement of SA in the plant abiotic responses has been recently provided. This chapter covers the recent progress in our understanding of the SA signaling pathways and mechanisms by which SA performs its role as the mediator of stress responses. In the upper half, history and progress in reactive oxygen species (ROS) and calcium signaling-related researches are covered, as both ROS and calcium are now considered to act downstream of SA action during both the plant defense against pathogenic microbes and cellular response to various abiotic stimuli. In the lower half of the chapter, plant cell responses to abiotic stresses in the surrounding environment including exposures of plant cells to photochemical oxidants chiefly ozone, radiation by ultraviolet light, and toxic metal ions such as ions of copper and aluminum are discussed.
