Francesca Matteucci's chapter is on Chemical evolution of the Milky Way and its Satellites.

As designed by the SSAA, books in this series - and this one too - are targeted at graduate and PhD students and young researchers in astronomy, astrophysics and cosmology.

Lecturers and researchers entering the field will also benefit from the book.
