G. eclipsing binaries or stars with known spinning axes) to enhance the probability of having the correct orientation for their planetary planes, because only a smaller number of objects can be monitored (Schneider & Chevreton, 1990). g. stellar spots in a slowly rotating star, has to be considered as well as the stellar photometric noise that could bury the planetary signal. ) that should help their characterization. Note that, with direct observations in the IR from space, the search for transits is one of the very few methods that could detect telluric planets in the near to middle future.
