Abstract

We use a compilation of star formation histories (SFHs) and cosmological simulations to explore the impact of cosmic reionization on nearby isolated dwarf galaxies. Nearby dwarfs show a wide diversity of SFHs; from ancient systems that completed their star formation (SF) ~10 Gyr ago to young dwarfs that formed themajority of their stars in the past~5Gyr to 'twocomponent' systems characterized by the overlap of old and young stars. As an ensemble, SF in nearby dwarfs dips to lower-than-average rates at intermediate times (4
