Star Formation in Galaxies along the Hubble Sequence

  title={Star Formation in Galaxies along the Hubble Sequence},
  author={Robert C. Kennicutt},
Observations of star formation rates (SFRs) in galaxies provide vital clues to the physical nature of the Hubble sequence and are key probes of the evolutionary histories of galaxies. The focus of this review is on the broad patterns in the star formation properties of galaxies along the Hubble sequence and their implications for understanding galaxy evolution and the physical processes that drive the evolution. Star formation in the disks and nuclear regions of galaxies are reviewed separately… CONTINUE READING
