Upper panel: N/O abundance ratio plotted against He abundance for our PN sample. The top-right box marks the criteria given by Peimbert (1990) to define Type I PNe. In green we included the data of the Galactic PNe sample by Henry et al. (2004). Predictions of stellar evolution models by Karakas (2010) for Z = 0.02 and different initial masses (indicated in units of M) are also included. The solar symbol represents the solar values. Lower panel: relationship between N/O abundance ratio and the total N abundance; the fit to our data is shown as a dashed line (see text). The predictions of stellar evolution models by Karakas (2010) for stars with different initial masses and for two different metallicities are included.

Current usage metrics show cumulative count of Article Views (full-text article views including HTML views, PDF and ePub downloads, according to the available data) and Abstracts Views on Vision4Press platform.

Data correspond to usage on the plateform after 2015. The current usage metrics is available 48-96 hours after online publication and is updated daily on week days.
