Abiotic stress conditions are a global constraint that affects plant growth and crop yield worldwide, and this phenomenon is expected to be increased in the forthcoming future due to global climate change. Arabidopsis thaliana is the model organism for plant science since the early 1990s, and its genome has been known for more than a decade. Studies conducted with Arabidopsis created a foundation that could be transferred and used in its close relatives to similarity of genetic sequences. Up to now, studies on A. thaliana gave deep insight into different abiotic stress tolerance mechanisms. However, A. thaliana is not a stress-tolerant plant species. Therefore some of the stress tolerance mechanisms that are used by its stress-tolerant relatives might not even be observed in Arabidopsis. This chapter focused on reactive oxygen species (ROS) production during environmental stress and antioxidant defence systems activated against it in A. thaliana and its close relatives such as Thellungiella sp., A. halleri, Thlaspi sp., Lepidium sativum and Arabis paniculata.
