Abstract

Although there are many more stellar population studies of elliptical and lenticular galaxies, studies of spiral galaxies are catching up, due to higher signal to noise data on one hand, and better analysis methods on the other. Here I start by discussing some modern methods of analyzing integrated spectra of spiral galaxies, and comparing them with traditional methods. I then discuss some recent developments in our understanding of the stellar content of spiral galaxies, and their associated dust content. I discuss star formation histories, radial stellar population gradients, and stellar populations in sigma drops.
