We present a discussion on the effects of convection on the uvby
colours of A and F stars. The mixing-length theory used in ATLAS9
is compared to the turbulent convection theory of Canuto & Mazzitelli.
Comparison with fundamental stars reveals that colours calculated using
the Canuto & Mazzitelli convection theory are generally in better
agreement than those obtained using mixing-length theory.
