We provide a gyrofluid model of a collisionless and magnetized plasma, valid for finite βe, finite parallel magnetic perturbations and electron finite Larmor radius effects. This model is used to study the linear and non-linear evolution of magnetic reconection and magnetic islands. Gyrofluid models provide an effective tool, complementary to kinetic models, for studying such effects.
