Mass loss plays a major role in the evolution of massive stars. Its effects on the modelling of massive stars (in particular internal structure, evolutionary tracks in the HR diagram, lifetimes, and surface abundances) will first be presented in detail. The modelling of Wolf-Rayet stars will then be examined. The interaction between mass loss and rotation, as well as between mass loss and pulsation, will finally be briefly discussed.
