We present H I21-cm line observations, obtained with the Australia Telescope Compact Array, of two dwarf elliptical galaxies (dEs) in the Fomax cluster: FCC032 and FCC336. The optical positions and velocities of these galaxies place them well within the Fornax cluster. FCC032 was detected at the 3σ significance level with a total HI flux density of 0.66 ± 0.22 Jy km s -1 or an HI mass of 5.0 ± 1.7 x 10 7 h -2 75 M ○. . Based on our deep Ha + [N II] narrow-band images, obtained with FORS2…

The transmutation of dwarf galaxies: stellar populations

Transition-type dwarf (TTD) galaxies share characteristics of early-and late-type dwarfs. Thus, they are suspected to be the thread that connects them. We selected 19 TTD galaxies in the nearby
