Abstract: Well established correlations of low-mass flows show a continuity in the high-mass regime, and mean accretion rates for L > 1000 Lsun are dM/dt(accr) approx 10-4 Msun/yr. We also present a tight correlation between outflow masses and core masses, which implies that the accretion rate is to first order a linear function of the core mass. All those results support the idea that similar physical processes drive outflows of all masses.
