Heat stress caused by climate factors seriously affects crop yield and quality, which has attracted wide attention. In response to heat stress, different metabolites were accumulated in plants and a series of signaling pathways were activated. These changes highlighted the complexity of physiological and molecular mechanisms of plant response to heat stress. In this paper, the role of biomembrane, active oxygen detoxification mechanism, heat shock protein and various protectants in the formation of plant heat tolerance was reviewed in detail, and the further study for the response of plant heat stress and the mechanism of heat tolerance was prospected in order to provide guidance for plant heat tolerance breeding.
