We describe the various Hα morphologies of Virgo Cluster and isolated spiral galaxies and associate the Hα morphologies with the types of environmental interactions that have altered the cluster galaxies. The spatial distributions of Hα and R-band emission are used to divide the star formation morphologies of the 52 Virgo Cluster spiral galaxies into several categories: normal (37%), anemic (6%), enhanced (6%), and (spatially) truncated (52%). Truncated galaxies are further subdivided on the… Expand
