We present an all-sky catalog of 451 nearby galaxies, each having an individual distance estimate D 10 Mpc or a radial velocity VLG -17.0, which contribute about 4% to the local luminosity density, and roughly 10%–15% to the local H I mass density. The H I mass-to-luminosity and the H I mass-to-total (indicative) mass ratios increase systematically from giant galaxies toward dwarfs, reaching maximum values about 5 in solar units for the most tiny objects. For the Local Volume disklike galaxies… 
Catalog of nearby isolated galaxies in the volume z < 0.01
We present a catalog of 520 most isolated nearby galaxies with angular velocities VLG < 3500 km/s, covering the entire sky. This population of “space orphans” makes up 4.8% among 10 900 galaxies with
We present an all-sky catalog of 869 nearby galaxies having individual distance estimates within 11 Mpc or corrected radial velocities V LG < 600 km s–1. The catalog is a renewed and expanded version
Star Formation Properties in the Local Volume Galaxies via Hα and Far-ultraviolet Fluxes
A distance-limited sample of 869 objects from the Updated Nearby Galaxy Catalog is used to characterize the star formation status of the Local Volume population. We present a compiled list of 1217
Mining the Local Volume
After recent systematic optical, IR, and HI surveys, the total number of known galaxies within 10 Mpc has increased from 179 to 550. About half this Local Volume (LV) sample is now been imaged with
Morphological properties of galaxies in different Local Volume environments
We consider an all-sky sample of 1029 Local Volume (LV) galaxies situated within a distance of 11 Mpc. Their majority have precise distances, estimates of hydrogen mass fraction and star-formation
HI-observations of dwarf galaxies in the Local Supercluster
We have observed 71 dwarf galaxies of low surface brightness using the 100-m radio telescope at Effelsberg in a search for new members of 27 northern galaxy groups with characteristic distances of 8
The Minimum Amount of Stars a Galaxy Will Form
We present an analysis of the atomic hydrogen and stellar properties of 38 late-type galaxies in the local universe covering a wide range of H I mass-to-light ratios (/LB), stellar luminosities, and
Dwarf Galaxies in the Local Volume
We review observational data about a sample of Local Volume objects containing about 1000 galaxies within 11 Mpc of the Milky Way. Dwarf galaxies with stellar masses M∗/Mʘ < 9 dexmake up 5/6 of the
Infrared luminosities of local-volume galaxies
Based on data from the Two-Micrometer All-Sky Survey (2MASS), we analyzed the infrared properties of 451 Local-Volume galaxies at distances D ≤ 10 Mpc. We determined the K-band luminosity function of
The Local Group and Other Neighboring Galaxy Groups
Over the last few years, rapid progress has been made in distance measurements for nearby galaxies based on the magnitude of stars on the tip of the red giant branch. Current CCD surveys with the


HI properties of nearby galaxies from a volume-limited sample
We consider global HI and optical properties of about three hundred nearby galaxies with V0 < 500 km s 1 . The majority of them have individual photo- metric distance estimates. The galaxy sample
New H I-detected Galaxies in the Zone of Avoidance
We present the first results of a blind H I survey for galaxies in the southern zone of avoidance with a multibeam receiver on the Parkes telescope. This survey is expected to eventually catalog
HI observations of nearby galaxies - IV. More dwarf galaxies in the southern sky
We carried out a systematic search for nearby dwarf galaxies in the northern sky based on POSS-II film copies. As a result we present a list of 101 nearby dwarf galaxy candidates mainly of low
HI observations of nearby galaxies - I. The first list of the Karachentsev catalog
We present H i observations of the galaxies in the second list of the Karachentsev catalog of pre- viously unknown nearby dwarf galaxies (Karachentseva et al. 1999). This survey covers an area of
H I-bright Galaxies in the Southern Zone of Avoidance
A blind survey for H I–bright galaxies in the southern zone of avoidance (212° ≤ l ≤ 36°, |b| ≤ 5°) has been made with the 21 cm multibeam receiver on the Parkes 64 m radio telescope. The survey,
Discovery of a Nearby Low Surface Brightness Spiral Galaxy
During the course of a search for compact, isolated gas clouds moving with anomalous velocities in or near our own Galaxy, we have discovered in the data of the Leiden/Dwingeloo survey of Galactic
A Neighboring Dwarf Irregular Galaxy Hidden by the Milky Way
We have obtained VLA and optical follow-up observations of the low-velocity H I source HIZSS 3 discovered by Henning et al. and Rivers in a survey for nearby galaxies hidden by the disk of the Milky
A Catalog of H I-Selected Galaxies from the South Celestial Cap Region of Sky
The first deep catalog of the H I Parkes All Sky Survey (HIPASS) is presented, covering the south celestial cap (SCC) region. The SCC area is similar to2400 deg(2) and covers delta < -62D. The
HI observations of nearby galaxies V. Narrow (HI) line galaxies
In this paper we present new HI observations with high velocity resolution for 104 nearby narrow-line galaxies with half power line widths smaller than 50 km s - 1 most of which are well approximated
▪ Abstract The Local Group dwarf galaxies offer a unique window to the detailed properties of the most common type of galaxy in the Universe. In this review, I update the census of Local Group dwarfs
