Lithium depletion boundary for low-mass stars and brown dwarfs

This figure shows the lithium depletion boundary in a Teff / age diagram for low-mass stars and brown dwarfs along with curves of constant mass, in a similar format than the Burrows (2001) figure created by Michael C. Cushing (see link below). These tracks are based on the AMES-Cond evolutionary models (Baraffe et al. 2003; 2nd link below).

This figure was inspired from Figure 1 of Basri et al. (1998; 3rd link below).
