All day
All times

Our understanding of the individual and population properties of very low mass stars is quickly evolving. We now have data sets providing precise periods, temperatures, luminosities, and variabilities for hundreds of M dwarfs and the time is ripe to form a comprehensive and detailed picture of the bottom of the main sequence. I will review recent advances in our understanding of late M dwarfs as well as early stellar L dwarfs from an observational perspective.
