Red giant star s-process and subsequent delayed electron capture, accounting for large Li abundances 
Chemical Evolution of Low- and Intermediate-Mass Stars
The chemical evolution of M ≲ 8 M⊙ stars during their red giant and asymptotic giant branch phases is reviewed. Open issues in abundance predictions are discussed, in particular those related to the
Astrophysics: A lithium-rich stellar explosion
The contribution of explosions known as novae to the lithium content of the Milky Way is uncertain. Radioactive beryllium, which transforms into lithium, has been detected for the first time in one
7Li Production in Luminous AGB Stars
We summarize current knowledge on Li abundances in AGB stars in the Magellanic Clouds and the Galaxy, insisting on the difficulties of abundance analyses.
Nucleosynthesis in AGB Stars: the Role of Dredge-Up and Hot Bottom Burning (invited review)
We review the basics of AGB nucleosynthesis in thermal pulses, in the hydrogen burning shell, and by Hot Bottom Burning.
Uncertainties in AGB evolution and nucleosynthesis
We summarise the evolution and nucleosynthesis in AGB and Super-AGB stars. We then examine the major sources of uncertainty, especially mass-loss.
The Puzzle of Lithium in Evolved Stars
The recent reports on the possible presence of lithium-6 in stars (some above the M.S.), (Andersen, Gustafsson and Lambert 1984) has renewed the interest in the hypothesis of spallation reactions in
The lithium in weak G-band stars
The lithum abundance in weak G-band stars is found to be linearly correlated with CH deficiency. Weak G-band stars with a high Li abundance are found to show relatively least carbon deficiency, while
Structural and chemical evolution of low- and intermediate-mass stars
We review the structural and nucleosynthetic evolution of stars in the mass range 0.8 -11 M⊙, focusing on the AGB and super-AGB phases. The effects of transport processes associated with rotation and
Evolution of red‐giant stars
Theorists are paying a lot of attention nowadays to the structure and evolution of highly luminous stars with low surface temperatures. These stars, referred to as “red giants” because of their color

Abstract Connections between observations of the lithium abundance in various types of red giants and stellar evolution are discussed here. The emphasis is on three main topics; 1) the depletion of
