Abstract: The environment in which a planet resides is largely controlled by the host star, not least by its magnetic activity. The resulting interplay between “the environment” and a planet may include magnetic interactions, interactions between stellar radiation (optical, UV, X-rays) and planetary atmospheres, and interactions between stellar particle fluxes (high-energy particles, stellar winds) and planetary magnetospheres.
