Many stars exhibit strong magnetic fields, some of which are thought to be of primordial origin and others a sign of magnetic dynamo processes. We briefly review the results of observational studies of solar-type stars seeking to evaluate the linkage between rotation rate and possible magnetic cycles of activity. Clearly turbulent convection and rotation within spherical shell geometries provide ingredients essential for dynamo action. However, intensive efforts over several decades in solar…
