THE MASS-METALLICITY GRADIENT RELATION OF EARLY-TYPE GALAXIES*
We present a newly observed relation between galaxy mass and radial metallicity gradients of early-type galaxies. Our sample of 51 early-type galaxies encompasses a comprehensive mass range fromExpand

THE CHEMICAL PROPERTIES OF MILKY WAY AND M31 GLOBULAR CLUSTERS. I. A COMPARATIVE STUDY
A comparative analysis is performed between high-quality integrated spectral indices of 30 M31 globular clusters, 20 Milky Way globular clusters, and a sample of field and cluster ellipticalExpand

The history of the discovery of the cigarette–lung cancer link: evidentiary traditions, corporate denial, global toll
Lung cancer was once a very rare disease, so rare that doctors took special notice when confronted with a case, thinking it a once-in-a-lifetime oddity. Mechanisation and mass marketing towards theExpand

Ages and metallicities of Hickson compact group galaxies
ABSTRACT Hickson Compact Groups (HCGs) constitute an interesting extreme in the range ofenvironments in which galaxies are located, as the space density of galaxies in thesesmall groups are otherwiseExpand

The 6dF Galaxy Survey: Fundamental Plane data
We report the 6dFGS Fundamental Plane (6dFGSv) catalogue that is used to estimate distances and peculiar velocities for nearly 9000 early-type galaxies in the local (z < 0.055) universe. VelocityExpand

The spatially resolved stellar populations of isolated early-type galaxies
ABSTRACT We present radial stellar population parameters for a subsample of 12 galaxies from the36 isolated early-type galaxies of Reda et al. Using new long-slit spectra, central valuesand radialExpand

Spatially resolved stellar populations in the isolated elliptical NGC 821
We present the analysis of Lick absorption-line indices from three separate long-slit spectroscopic observations of the nearby isolated elliptical galaxy NGC 821. The three data sets present aExpand

THE CHEMICAL PROPERTIES OF MILKY WAY AND M31 GLOBULAR CLUSTERS. II. STELLAR POPULATION MODEL PREDICTIONS
We derive ages, metallicities, and abundance ratios ([α/Fe]) from the integrated spectra of 23 globular clusters in M31 by employing multivariate fits to two different stellar population models. WeExpand
