Abstract

Here we describe some of our latest results from measuring detailed abundances in Local Group dwarf galaxies with the VLT. Combining spectroscopic abundances with Color-Magnitude diagrams allows the effective measurement of detailed chemical evolution with time in these galaxies. Although there are not yet significant numbers of individual stars observed in local group dwarf galaxies, the uniformity of the abundance patterns of the majority of stars in galaxies with very different star formation histories must hint at general properties of all star formation in these small systems.
