Polyamines (PAs) are natural aliphatic amines involved in many physiologicalprocesses in almost all living organisms, including responses to abiotic stresses andmicrobial interactions. On other hand, the family Leguminosae constitutes aneconomically and ecologically key botanical group for humans, being also regarded asthe most important protein source for livestock. This review presents the profuseevidence that relates changes in PAs levels during responses to biotic and abioticstresses in model and cultivable species within Leguminosae and examines theunreviewed information regarding their potential roles in the functioning of symbioticinteractions with nitrogen-fixing bacteria and arbuscular mycorrhizae in this family. Aslinking plant physiological behaviour with "big data" available in "omics" is anessential step to improve our understanding of legumes responses to global change, wealso examined integrative MultiOmics approaches available to decrypt the interfacelegumes-PAs-abiotic and biotic stress interactions. These approaches are expected toaccelerate the identification of stress tolerant phenotypes and the design of newbiotechnological strategies to increase their yield and adaptation to marginalenvironments, making better use of available plant genetic resources.
