We briefly review the crucial effect that convection plays in the evolution, interior and atmospheric physics of brown dwarfs. In particular, we discuss: (1) the role of convection in the interior structure and evolution of brown dwarfs (BDs); (2) the importance of convection in the atmospheres of ultra-cool objects, at both high and low gravities (i.e., in both young and old BDs); and (3) the role of convection/turbulence in the formation and settling of dust grains, and non-equilibrium chemistry, in BD atmospheres.
