8. Conclusions

The oxygen abundances in 64 HII regions in 12 LSB galaxies have been measured. Oxygen abundances are low. No region with solar abundance has been found, and most have oxygen abundances that are [FORMULA] to 0.1 solar. No strong radial oxygen abundance gradients are found. The abundance seems to be constant, rather, as a function of radius, supporting the picture of quiescently and sporadically evolving LSB galaxies.
