We use ∼2000 galaxies from PM2GC (Calvi, Poggianti & Vulcani 2011a) belonging to different environments to show how the fractions of different galaxy morphological types vary with global environment and as function of galaxy stellar mass at low redshift. Considering mass-limited galaxy samples with log10M★/M⊙≥ 10.25, we find a smooth increase/decline in the fraction of Es–S0s/late-type galaxies going from single galaxies, to binaries, to groups. Considering all environments, the fractional… CONTINUE READING
