We present the chemistry, temperature, and dynamical state of a sample of 193 dense cores or core candidates in the Perseus Molecular cloud and compare the properties of cores associated with young stars and clusters with those which are not. The combination of our NH 3 and CCS observations with previous millimeter, sub-millimeter, and Spitzer data(More)
