Evolution of CNO abundances in the Universe

Nikos Prantzos (Institut d’Astrophysique de Paris)

Comments: 10 pages, 6 figs; Invited review talk in the Conference “CNO in the
Universe” (St. Luc, Switzerland, Sept. 2002), Eds. C. Charbonnel, G. Meynet
and D. Schaerer, ASP Conf. series, in press

After summarizing the most important features of current stellar yields of
CNO elements (including recent results concerning rotating and mass losing
stars) I discuss how these yields may help to interpret relevant observations
in the local Galaxy, the Milky Way disk and extragalactic systems
(extragalactic HII regions and DLAs).
