Abstract

Converging data indicate the possible existence of a general adaptation syndrome (GAS) in which different types of stress evoke identical coping mechanisms. In Selyean terms, this implies a 'co-stress' response whereby one type of stress resistance may impart co-resistance to others. Common coping denominators may be physiological or morphological. The former include oxy-free radical scavenging, osmoregulation, ABA, jasmonates, chaperones, HSPs, and phytochelatins. Morphological GAS adaptations include leaf pubescence, movements and stance, and rooting characteristics. The feasibility, with certain reservations, of the GAS hypothesis is discussed here.
