Abstract

Three new, independent projects that provide detailed predictions of nucleosynthesis yields (up to Z = 36) from massive stars are examined and compared. The general agreement is surprisingly good. Preliminary comparison with abundance data, especially for elemental abundances in extreme Population II stars, is promising. Implications of these comparisons and critical uncertainties are discussed.
