Massive star forming regions: from the local Universe to high redshift
Observatoire Midi-Pyrénées, Toulouse, France
We review the properties of stellar populations and the interstellar medium (ISM) of various kinds of massive star forming regions (ranging from stellar clusters, Hii regions, super star clusters, etc. to distant starburst galaxies). The nature of their multi-wavelength spectra as well as the techniques used for their interpretation is are discussed. These objects play an important role in our understanding of star formation, interactions between stars and the ISM, and galaxy evolution among others.
