The stellar populations of local dwarfs
Held, Enrico V.
Near-fields cosmology with dwarf elliptical galaxies, IAU Colloquium Proceedings of the international Astronomical Union 198, Held 14-18 March, Switzerland, edited by Jerjen, H.; Binggeli, B. Cambridge: Cambridge University Press, 2005., pp.11-16

Bibliographic Code:


Recent progress in our knowledge of stellar populations in local dwarf spheroidal galaxies is briefly discussed. A few results are summarized including wide field observations of stellar populations and their spatial variations, studies of AGB and variable stars, extension to near-infrared wavelengths, and the interpretation effort based on synthetic color-magnitude diagrams and chemical evolution models.
