Interpretive Summary:

Technical Abstract: Many plant biologists work on the identification of genes related to abiotic stress resistance, but the term ‘stress resistance gene’ is widely used without proper definition. Here it is argued that there is a need to update our understanding of this term and for standardization to facilitate integration of research data.
