Abstract

This review addresses the infrared emission from the most important classes of carbon-rich objects: the N- and R-type carbon stars, the carbon dwarfs and the CH-stars. Examples of carbon rich objects in the Galactic halo and the Magellanic Clouds are discussed. Discrimination of carbon-rich objects against red oxygen-rich objects is investigated. The detectibility of N-type carbon Miras in the DENIS and 2MASS near-infrared surveys is discussed.
