(Abridged) Low-luminosity, active star-forming blue compact galaxies (BCGs) are excellent laboratories for investigating the process of star formation on galactic scales and probing the interplay between massive stars and the surrounding interstellar (or intergalactic) medium. We investigated the morphology, structure, and stellar content of the Blue Compact Galaxy Mrk 900, combining optical integral field observations obtained with VIMOS at the VLT and deep broad-band photometry taken at the 2…

The host galaxy of the short GRB 050709
The host of the short gamma-ray burst (GRB) 050709 is a morphologically disturbed low-luminous galaxy. At a redshift of z = 0.16, it belongs to one of the cosmologically nearest short-GRB hosts
