Phytohormones are natural chemical messengers that play critical roles in the regulation of plant growth and development as well as in responses to biotic and abiotic stress factors. The discovery, almost 40 years ago, of a new class of phytohormones, the brassinosteroids (BRs), opened a new era and introduced new perspectives in the regulation of agronomic traits through their use in agriculture. The present article provides an overview of BRs’ discovery and recent findings on their interactions with other phytohormones, in addition to clarifying how their network works to modulate plant growth, development, and responses to biotic and abiotic stresses.
