Abstract

In these talks we shall discuss three topics of current interest; (i) the abundance of nitrogen in galaxies, and its interpretation in terms of stellar nucleosynthesis; (ii) the abundances of elements in the central regions of galaxies; (iii) the effects of gas flows and yield on the chemical evolution of galaxies.
