We present a study of the relationships and environmental dependencies between stellar mass, star formation rate, and gas metallicity for more than 700 galaxies in groups up to redshift 0.35 from the Galaxy And Mass Assembly (GAMA) survey. To identify the main drivers, our sample was analysed as a function of group-centric distance, projected galaxy number density, and stellar mass. By using control samples of more than 16 000 star-forming field galaxies and volume-limited samples, we find… 

The Variation of the Gas Content of Galaxy Groups and Pairs Compared to Isolated Galaxies

We measure how the atomic gas (H i) fraction fHI=MHIM* of groups and pairs taken as single units vary with average stellar mass (〈M *〉) and average star formation rate (〈SFR〉), compared to isolated



Galaxy and Mass Assembly (GAMA): Impact of the Group Environment on Galaxy Star Formation

We explore how the group environment may affect the evolution of star-forming galaxies. We select 1197 Galaxy And Mass Assembly groups at 0.05 ≤ z ≤ 0.2 and analyze the projected phase space (PPS)

Galaxy and Mass Assembly (GAMA): The environmental dependence of the galaxy main sequence

Aims: We aim to investigate if the environment (characterised by the host dark matter halo mass) plays any role in shaping the galaxy star formation main sequence (MS). Methods: The Galaxy and Mass

Galaxy And Mass Assembly (GAMA): galaxy environments and star formation rate variations

We present a detailed investigation into the effects of galaxy environment on their star formation rates (SFRs) using galaxies observed in the Galaxy And Mass Assembly (GAMA) survey. We use three

Galaxy and mass assembly (GAMA): A deeper view of the mass, metallicity and SFR relationships

A full appreciation of the role played by gas metallicity (Z), star formation rate (SFR) and stellar mass (M*) is fundamental to understanding how galaxies form and evolve. The connections between

Galaxy and Mass Assembly (GAMA): the star formation rate dependence of the stellar initial mass function

The stellar initial mass function (IMF) describes the distribution in stellar masses produced from a burst of star formation. For more than 50 yr, the implicit assumption underpinning most areas of


Analyzing 24 μm MIPS/Spitzer data and the [O ii]3727 line of a sample of galaxies at 0.4 ⩽ z ⩽ 0.8 from the ESO Distant Cluster Survey, we investigate the ongoing star formation rate (SFR) and the

Galaxy And Mass Assembly (GAMA): the interplay between galaxy mass, SFR, and heavy element abundance in paired galaxy sets

We study the star formation rate (SFR), stellar mass (M⋆), and the gas metallicity (Z) for 4636 galaxy pairs using the Galaxy And Mass Assembly (GAMA) survey. Our galaxy pairs lie in a redshift

The mass–metallicity relation in galaxy clusters: the relative importance of cluster membership versus local environment

Using a large (14 857), homogenously selected sample of cluster galaxies identified in the Sloan Digital Sky Survey Data Release 4, we investigate the impact of cluster membership and local density

Galaxy And Mass Assembly (GAMA): the effect of close interactions on star formation in galaxies

The modification of star formation (SF) in galaxy interactions is a complex process, with SF observed to be both enhanced in major mergers and suppressed in minor pair interactions. Such changes

Galaxy And Mass Assembly (GAMA): the dependence of the galaxy luminosity function on environment, redshift and colour

We use 80 922 galaxies in the Galaxy And Mass Assembly (GAMA) survey to measure the galaxy luminosity function (LF) in different environments over the redshift range 0.04 < z < 0.26. The depth and
