The evolution of gas abundances in galaxies and the enrichment of heavy elements as a function of space and time reflects the history of star formation and the lifetimes of the diverse contributing stellar objects. Supernovae of type la and type II/Ib/Ic are the main contributors to nucleosynthesis in galaxies. Despite many efforts, a full and self-consistent understanding of supernova explosion mechanisms is not existing, yet. However, they leave fingerprints, seen either in spectra, lightcurves, radioactivities/decay gamma-rays or in galactic evolution. Here we want to address the relation of model uncertainties to the composition of ejecta and test them with constraints from abundance observations.
