Universal Families of Rational Tropical Curves
We introduce the notion of families of $n$marked
smooth rational tropical curves over smooth tropical varieties and
establish a onetoone correspondence between (equivalence classes of)
these families and morphisms
from smooth tropical varieties into the moduli space of $n$marked
abstract rational tropical curves $\mathcal{M}_{n}$.

The Characteristic Numbers of Quartic Plane Curves
The characteristic numbers of smooth plane quartics are computed
using intersection theory on a component of the moduli space of
stable maps. This completes the verification of Zeuthen's
prediction of characteristic numbers of smooth plane curves. A
short sketch of a computation of the characteristic numbers of
plane cubics is also given as an illustration.
