Both the red giants and the Mira variables in symbiotic systems have systematically higher mass-loss rates than do typical galactic giants and Miras, which suggests that only very evolved giants, and so those with highest mass-loss rates, can support symbiotic behaviour in widely separated binary systems. They often show a flattened mass-loss geometry due to an intrinsically inhomogeneous mass loss and/or tidal interactions between the binary components. The main body of a symbiotic nebula is… Expand
