Part of the Lecture Notes in Physics book series (LNP, volume 237)


First identified by Herbig (1960), the Herbig Ae/Be stars are usually considered as pre-main sequence objects of intermediate mass, and are found at the edges of regions of heavy obscuration.

The study of the interaction of these stars with their surrounding clouds is subordinated to a good knowledge of the structure of their envelopes. The present paper is devoted to a brief review of the observational data available for these stars, and of the constraints on the structure of their envelopes that can be derived from these data.
