Abstract

Here I consider arguments for and against galactic wind dominated evolution of dIs based on observations of individual galaxies, implications from chemical evolution, and numerical modeling experiments. I find that there is insufficient observational evidence to conclude that galactic winds dominate the evolution of present day dIs. I attempt to identify future observations which will improve our understanding of this problem.
