We examine the origins of the bimodality observed in the global properties of galaxies around a stellar mass of 3 × 1010 M☉ by comparing the environmental dependencies of star formation for the giant and dwarf galaxy populations. The Sloan Digital Sky Survey DR4 spectroscopic data set is used to produce a sample of galaxies in the vicinity of the supercluster centered on the cluster A2199 at z = 0.03 that is 90% complete to M + 3.3. From this we measure global trends with environment for both…

The Different Environmental Dependencies and Evolutions of Giant and Dwarf Galaxies
Abstract The star-formation histories, masses and structural properties of galaxies are strongly dependent on their environment: massive, passively-evolving spheroids dominate cluster cores, while in
The Different Physical Mechanisms that Drive the Star-Formation Histories of Giant and Dwarf Galaxies
We present an analysis of star formation and nuclear activity in galaxies as a function of both luminosity and environment in the fourth data release of the Sloan Digital Sky Survey. Using a sample
The evolution of dwarf galaxies in the Coma supercluster
We employ spectroscopic and photometric data from the Sloan Digital Sky Survey Data Release 7, in a 500-deg 2 region, to understand the evolution of dwarf [~(M* + 2) < M z < M * + 4] galaxies in the
ENVIRONMENTAL EFFECTS ON THE METAL ENRICHMENT OF LOW-MASS GALAXIES IN NEARBY CLUSTERS
In this paper, we study the chemical history of low-mass star-forming (SF) galaxies in the local universe clusters Coma, A1367, A779, and A634. The aim of this work is to search for the imprint of
A spectroscopic survey of dwarf galaxies in the Coma cluster: stellar populations, environment and downsizing
We investigate the stellar populations in a sample of 89 faint red galaxies in the Coma cluster, using high signal-to-noise ratio (S/N) spectroscopy from the 6.5-m MMT. Our sample is drawn from two
Star formation in galaxies falling into clusters along supercluster-scale filaments
With the help of a statistical parameter derived from optical spectra, we show that the current star formation rate of a galaxy, falling into a cluster along a supercluster filament, is likely to
Study of galaxies on large-scale filaments in simulations
We use data from the Evolution and Assembly of GaLaxies in their Environment (EAGLE) cosmological simulation to study properties of galaxies in the cosmic web. Galaxies become more redder and form
The dependence of galaxy group star formation rates and metallicities on large‐scale environment
We construct a sample of 75,863 star forming galaxies with robust metallicity and star formation rate measurements from the Sloan Digital Sky Survey Data Release 7 (SDSS DR7), from which we select a
On the origin of the faint-end of the red sequence in high-density environments
With the advent of the new generation wide-field cameras it became possible to survey in an unbiased mode galaxies spanning a variety of local densities, from the core of rich clusters, to compact
UV TO FAR-IR CATALOG OF A GALAXY SAMPLE IN NEARBY CLUSTERS: SPECTRAL ENERGY DISTRIBUTIONS AND ENVIRONMENTAL TRENDS
In this paper, we present a sample of cluster galaxies devoted to study the environmental influence on the star formation activity. This sample of galaxies inhabits in clusters showing a rich variety
