000002811 520__ $$aObservations of AGB stars in the Magellanic Clouds with the  Infrared Spectrograph on the Spitzer Space Telescope  have revealed that the rate of dust production by oxygen-rich  stars decreases in more metal-poor environments, while the  production of dust by carbon stars shows no detectable  dependence on metallicity.  Observations in other Local Group  galaxies extend the lack of a dependence for carbon stars to lower metallicities.  Studies of low-mass oxygen-rich AGB  stars in Galactic globular clusters reinforce the metallicity  dependence detected in the Magellanic Clouds.  Because the AGB dominates dust input into the interstellar medium,  it follows that in more metal-poor galaxies, interstellar dust will be more carbon rich.
