Abstract: We will discuss how we can derive very important constraints on galaxy formation and evolution by studying some crucial abundance ratios in galaxies. In particular, we will describe the results obtained by detailed chemical evolution models of galaxies of different morphological type concerning mainly [α/Fe] ratios and how we can use them to understand galaxy evolution and to infer the nature of high redshift objects.
