Abstract: Let Mng be the moduli space of npointed Riemann surfaces of genus g. Denote by M̄ng the DeligneMumford compactification of Mng. In the present paper, we calculate the orbifold and the ordinary Euler characteristics of M̄ng for any g and n such that n > 2  2g. © 2011 European Mathematical Society.
