Abstract: We discuss the importance for the long-term cluster evolution of the mass loss from intermediate-mass stars (0.8–8 MSolar). We present constraints on the mass loss from red giants in clusters in the Magellanic Clouds, a search for the intra-cluster medium in galactic globular clusters, and a simple estimate for the cluster evolution due to red giant mass loss compared to stellar escape.
