We study the presence of optically-selected Active Galactic Nuclei (AGNs) within a sample of 867 galaxies extracted from the extended {\it Calar-Alto Legacy Integral Field spectroscopy Area} (eCALIFA) spanning all morphological classes. We identify 10 Type-I and 24 Type-II AGNs, amounting to $\sim4$ per cent of our sample, similar to the fraction reported by previous explorations in the same redshift range. We compare the integrated properties of the ionized and molecular gas, and stellar…

The EDGE–CALIFA survey: central molecular gas depletion in AGN host galaxies – a smoking gun for quenching?
Feedback from an active galactic nucleus (AGN) is often implicated as a mechanism that leads to the quenching of galactic star formation. However, AGN-driven quenching is challenging to reconcile
The stellar metallicity distribution function of galaxies in the CALIFA survey
We present a novel method to retrieve the chemical structure of galaxies using integral field spectroscopy data through the stellar Metallicity Distribution Function (MDF). This is the probability
Signatures of AGN-induced Metal Loss in the Stellar Population
One way the active galactic nuclei (AGN) are expected to influence the evolution of their host galaxies is by removing metal content via outflows. In this article we present results that show that
Compact Molecular Gas Distribution in Quasar Host Galaxies
We use Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array CO (2–1) observations of six low-redshift Palomar-Green quasars to study the distribution and kinematics of the molecular gas of their host
Larger λR in the disc of isolated active spiral galaxies than in their non-active twins
We present a comparison of the spin parameter λR, measured in a region dominated by the galaxy disc, between 20 pairs of nearby (0.005 <  z <  0.03) seemingly isolated twin galaxies differing in
Detection of metallicity correlations in 100 nearby galaxies
In this paper we analyse the statistics of the 2D gas-phase oxygen abundance distributions of 100 nearby galaxies drawn from the Calar Alto Legacy Integral Field spectroscopy Area survey. After
Estimating the metallicity of star-forming early-type galaxies
We derive data for 4615 star-forming early-type galaxies (ETGs), which come from a cross-match of the Galaxy Zoo and the catalogue of the Max Planck Institute for Astrophysics–Johns Hopkins
Galaxy evolution on resolved scales: ageing and quenching in CALIFA
This work investigates the fundamental mechanism(s) that drive galaxy evolution in the local Universe. By comparing two proxies of star formation sensitive to different time-scales, such as EW($\rm
Arp 70: an interacting galaxy with extreme outflows
We analysed a Fabry–Pérot (FP) cube of the interacting pair of galaxies Arp 70, which was obtained from the CeSAM public repository of FP data. On the larger galaxy Arp 70b, we detected the
[α/Fe] traced by H II regions from the CALIFA survey
Context. Differential enrichment between α and Fe-peak elements is known to be strongly connected with the shape of the star formation history (SFH), the star formation efficiency (SFE), the inflow


Quasar host galaxy star formation activity from multicolour data
We investigate multicolour imaging data of a complete sample of 19 low redshift (z < 0.2) quasar host galaxies. The sample was imaged in four optical (BVRi) and three near-infrared bands (JHKs).
We present the results from a study of the host galaxies of 15 optically selected active galactic nuclei (AGNs) with 0.5 < z < 1.1 from the Galaxy Evolution from Morphology and SEDs project (GEMS).
The host galaxies of active galactic nuclei
We examine the properties of the host galaxies of 22 623 narrow-line active galactic nuclei (AGN) with 0.02 < z < 0.3 selected from a complete sample of 122 808 galaxies from the Sloan Digital Sky
The first 62 AGN observed with SDSS-IV MaNGA – II. Resolvedstellar populations
We present spatially resolved stellar population age maps, average radial profiles and gradients for the first 62 Active Galactic Nuclei (AGN) observed with SDSS-IV MaNGA to study the effects of the
The near-infrared properties of the host galaxies of radio quasars
We present K-band images of 31 radio quasars selected from the B3-VLA quasar sample. A new method has been developed to detect and restore the host galaxies of these quasars. We have detected the

We report the characterization of the first $62$ MaNGA Active Galactic Nuclei (AGN) hosts in the Fifth Product Launch (MPL-5) and the definition of a control sample of non-active galaxies. This
Retired galaxies: not to be forgotten in the quest of the star formation – AGN connection
We propose a fresh look at the Main Galaxy Sample of the Sloan Digital Sky Survey by packing the galaxies in stellar mass and redshift bins. We show how important it is to consider the emission-line
