Abstract
In this paper, we discuss the benefits of ground-based, adaptive optics (AO) aided observations for star formation research. After outlining the general advantages, we present results obtained during the ALFA science demonstration program in 1999. These results underline the absolute necessity of AO assistance for almost any kind of observations regarding star formation regions.
