In this article the current knowledge of the group of lambda Bootis stars
is reviewed. These metal poor objects are quite outstanding compared to other
chemically peculiar stars of the upper main sequence. Up to now no theory
has been developed which is able to explain the majority of observational
results. This article is mainly focused on the work which needs to be done
in the future in order to clarify the lambda Bootis phenomenon.
