I review the implementation of the effects from varying chemical element abundance ratios in stellar population modelling. Recent highlights include the adoption of new flux calibrated libraries, the inclusion of a wide range of chemical elements, the calculation of error estimates on the model, and the consideration of element variation effects on full spectra. Some key results on the element ratios measured in early-type galaxies are discussed.
