The basic principles underlying galactic chemical evolution and the most important results of chemical evolution models are discussed. In particular, the chemical evolution of the Milky Way galaxy, for which we possess the majority of observational constraints, is described. Then, it is shown how different star formation histories influence the chemical evolution of galaxies of different morphological type. Finally, the role of abundances and abundance ratios as cosmic clocks is emphasized and…

Elemental Abundances in GRB Afterglows and High‐Redshift DLAs
We present the results of a survey of GRB afterglows and DLA absorption line systems, in which we compare the abundances of elements from the absorbers with surveys of stars, and previous work. Our
