Jasmonic acid is a crucial phytohormone that plays a pivotal role, serving as a regulator to balancing plant development and resistance. However, there are analogous and distinctive characteristics exhibited in JA biosynthesis, perception, and signal transduction pathways in both herbaceous and woody plants. Moreover, the majority of research subjects have predominantly focused on the function of JA in model or herbaceous plants. Consequently, there is a significant paucity of studies investigating JA regulation networks in woody plants, particularly concerning post-transcriptional regulatory events such as alternative splicing (AS). This review article aims to conduct a comprehensive summary of advancements that JA signals regulate plant development across various woody species, comparing the analogous features and regulatory differences to herbaceous counterparts. In addition, we summarized the involvement of AS events including splicing factor (SF) and transcripts in the JA regulatory network, highlighting the effectiveness of high-throughput proteogenomic methods. A better understanding of the JA signaling pathway in woody plants has pivotal implications for forestry production, including optimizing plant management and enhancing secondary metabolite production.
