After summarizing the most important features of current stellar yields of CNO elements (including recent results concerning rotating and mass losing stars) I discuss how these yields may help to interpret relevant observations in the local Galaxy, the Milky Way disk and extragalactic systems (extragalactic HII regions and DLAs).

Chemical evolution with rotating massive star yields - I. The solar neighbourhood and the s-process elements

We present a comprehensive study of the abundance evolution of the elements from H to U in the Milky Way halo and local disk. We use a consistent chemical evolution model, metallicity dependent

Production and evolution of Li, Be, and B isotopes in the Galaxy

Context. We reassess the problem of the production and evolution of the light elements Li, Be and B and of their isotopes in the Milky Way in the light of new observational and theoretical

The nitrogen-to-oxygen evolution in galaxies: the role of the star formation rate

The main objective of the present work is to ckeck if the star formation effi ciency plays a relevant role in the evolution of the relative abundance N/O. In order to explore this idea, we analyze
