Plant growth and development are easily affected by environmental changes, and epigenetic mechanisms play important roles in regulating gene expression in response to environmental stimuli. In recent years, epigenetic stu- dies have achieved important progress in the response to abiotic stresses in plants, providing a good foundation for further understanding the potential molecular mechanisms. In this review, we summarize the plant epigenetic regulations, including DNA methylation, histone modification, chromatin remodeling and small RNA, in response to abiotic stresses.

Key words: epigenetic, abiotic stress, plant, growth and development, research advance
