Stomata are central to the physiology of land plants because environmentally induced changes in their development and movements have profound effects on the gas exchange between the atmosphere and the leaf.

Recently, considerable advances have been made in the understanding of guard cell biology, and this Special Issue of New Phytologist brings together the full complement of current research approaches, from evolution and climate change modelling through to intramolecular signalling processes. But what has driven the current wave of interest?
