In this paper we survey some recent results on the behavior of solutions of parabolic equations subjected to nonlinear boundary conditions. The results range from local existence and regularity of solutions, to global existence, dissipativeness and existence of attractors, and to blow-up in finite time. Some applications are given to some singular perturbation problems and to pattern formation from boundary flux.
