The environments and clustering properties of 2dF Galaxy Redshift Survey selected starburst galaxies

Owers, Matt S; Blake, Chris; Couch, Warrick; Pracy, Michael; Bekki, Kenji


We investigate the environments and clustering properties of starburst galaxies selected from the 2dF Galaxy Redshift Survey (2dFGRS) in order to determine which, if any, environmental factors play a role in triggering a starburst. We quantify the local environments, clustering properties and luminosity functions of our starburst galaxies and compare to random control samples. The starburst galaxies are also classified morphologically in terms of their broad Hubble type and evidence of tidal...[Show more]
