Despite more than one century of observational stellar
spectroscopy, the resulting data is not available in an easily
accessible format. The necessity of such basic information is
greater than ever, because new wavelength regions (ultraviolet,
infrared) are now accessible and modern receivers can only analyse
short stretches of spectra, so that a careful pre-selection of
strategic elements is mandatory. This book presents a summary of
our knowledge of the behaviour of all chemical elements identified
in stars, based on observations rather than on their
interpretations. Whenever possible the behaviour is described
quantitatively, with the help of equivalent widths in different
types of stars, or different ionization stages, for both absorption
and emission features. It will provide an authoritative reference
book for the astrophysical community.
