The rate of supernovae (SNe) is a key number linking stellar evolution with galaxy evolution models. Stellar evolution theories predict life times, fates and nucleosysntesis yields of individual stars which are used to predicted the galaxy chemical evolution once the star formation history in the galaxy is known. Constraints to the models are the present chemical content of galaxies but also the present observed SN rate (Arimoto & Yoshi, 1987; Ferrini & Poggianti, 1993; Matteucci, 1994; Renzini et al., 1993; Bressan et al., 1994; Elbaz et al., 1995).
