Do molecular clouds collapse to form stars at the same rate in all environments? In large spiral galaxies, the rate of tran sformation of H2 into stars (hereafter SFE) varies little. However, the SFE i n distant objects ( z ∼ 1) is much higher than in the large spiral disks that dominate the local universe. Some small local group galaxie s share at least some of the characteristics of intermediate -redshift objects, such as size or color. Recent work has suggested that the Star Formation… CONTINUE READING
