The plant lipidomics is a comprehensive system of all lipids in plants with respect to cell signalling, membrane architecture, transcriptional and translational modulation and cellcell and cell-protein interactions in response to environmental changes over time. This chapter is mainly focused on the role of plant lipids in signalling pathways during stress conditions, which were described in detail. In order to ameliorate lipid research, various analytical methods developed to characterise and quantify lipids are discussed with the salient points. Various lipid databases are provided which will be useful to access a wide range of information about lipids. Few online resources for the lipids are also described. This can help further research in the fi eld of plant lipidomics. In conclusion, the role of plant lipids over human health and some of biological roles were illustrated.
