The article reports on progress in the study of sugars' role in plant growth and development. Topics discussed include ways by which sugars help plants deal with environmental stress and diseases and their impact on flowering, process involve in hormone signaling events between sugars and plants and role of sugar in energy homeostasis. Also discussed are studies published as of 2014 focusing on sugar-plant relationship.
