Using photometry and spectroscopy of 183,487 galaxies from the Sloan Digital Sky Survey, we present bivariate distributions of pairs of seven galaxy properties: four optical colors, surface brightness, radial profile shape as measured by the Sérsic index, and absolute magnitude. In addition, we present the dependence of local galaxy density (smoothed on 8 h-1 Mpc scales) on all of these properties. Several classic, well-known relations among galaxy properties are evident at extremely high… 
The Dependence on Environment of the Color-Magnitude Relation of Galaxies
The distribution in color and absolute magnitude is presented for 55,158 galaxies taken from the Sloan Digital Sky Survey in the redshift range 0.08 < z < 0.12, as a function of the galaxy number
Quantifying the Bimodal Color-Magnitude Distribution of Galaxies
We analyze the bivariate distribution, in color versus absolute magnitude (u-r vs. Mr), of a low-redshift sample of galaxies from the Sloan Digital Sky Survey (2400 deg2, 0.004 < z < 0.08, -23.5 < Mr

Relationship between Environment and the Broadband Optical Properties of Galaxies in the Sloan Digital Sky Survey
We examine the relationship between environment and the luminosities, surface brightnesses, colors, and profile shapes of luminous galaxies in the Sloan Digital Sky Survey (SDSS). For the SDSS
