In this paper, we study the chemical history of low-mass star-forming (SF) galaxies in the local universe clusters Coma, A1367, A779, and A634. The aim of this work is to search for the imprint of the environment on the chemical evolution of these galaxies. Galaxy chemical evolution is linked to the star formation history, as well as to the gas interchange with the environment, and low-mass galaxies are well known to be vulnerable systems to environmental processes affecting both these… 
The role of cold gas and environment on the stellar mass-metallicity relation of nearby galaxies
We investigate the relationship between stellar mass, metallicity and gas content for a magnitude- and volume-limited sample of 260 nearby late-type galaxies in different environments, from isolated
SDSS-IV MaNGA: environmental dependence of gas metallicity gradients in local star-forming galaxies
Within the standard model of hierarchical galaxy formation in a Λ cold dark matter universe, the environment of galaxies is expected to play a key role in driving galaxy formation and evolution. In
DEPENDENCE OF NEBULAR HEAVY-ELEMENT ABUNDANCE ON H I CONTENT FOR SPIRAL GALAXIES
We analyze the galactic H i content and nebular log (O/H) for 60 spiral galaxies in the Moustakas et al. (2006a) spectral catalog. After correcting for the mass–metallicity relationship, we show that
The weak imprint of environment on the stellar populations of galaxies
We investigate the environmental dependence of the stellar populations of galaxies in SDSS DR7. Echoing earlier works, we find that satellites are both more metal-rich (<0.1 dex) and older (<2 Gyr)
The origin of the enhanced metallicity of satellite galaxies.
Observations of galaxies in the local Universe have shown that both the ionized gas and the stars of satellites are more metal-rich than of equally massive centrals. To gain insight into the
The Dependence of the Mass-Metallicity Relation on Large Scale Environment
We examine the relation between gas-phase oxygen abundance and stellar mass---the MZ relation---as a function of the large scale galaxy environment parameterized by the local density. The dependence
ORIGIN OF THE GALAXY MASS–METALLICITY–STAR FORMATION RELATION
We describe an equilibrium model that links the metallicity of low-redshift galaxies to stellar evolution models. It enables the testing of different stellar initial mass functions and metal yields
Bursting and quenching in satellite galaxies
The difference in stellar metallicity between red and blue galaxies with the same mass constrains the time-scale over which red galaxies ceased to form stars. Here we investigate this constraint
De re metallica: the cosmic chemical evolution of galaxies
The evolution of the content of heavy elements in galaxies, the relative chemical abundances, their spatial distribution, and how these scale with various galactic properties, provide unique
A Complete Spectroscopic Census of A2029: A Tale of Three Histories
A rich spectroscopic census of members of the local massive cluster A2029 includes 1215 members of A2029 and its two infalling groups, A2033 and the Southern Infalling Group. The two infalling groups
