Abstract
In this contribution, the latest ALICE results on charmed baryon production are presented. In particular the measurements of $\Lambda_{c}^{+}$ baryon production in pp collisions at $\sqrt{s}$ = 5.02 TeV and in p-Pb collisions at $\sqrt{s_{NN}}$ = 5.02 TeV are shown and compared with previous measurements performed using pp and p-Pb data samples collected during LHC Run 1. At mid-rapidity charmed baryons are reconstructed via their hadronic decay and semileptonic decay channels, exploiting the high precision tracking, excellent vertexing and particle identification capabilities offered by the ALICE detector. The first measurement of \lcp-baryon production in Pb-Pb collisions at $\sqrt{s_{NN}}$ = 5.02 TeV is also shown. Results are compared with theoretical expectations.
