Brough, Sarah; Oliva-Altamirano, Paola; Tran, Kim-Vy; Jimmy; Miller, Christopher; Bremer, Malcom N.; Phillipps, Steven; Sharp, Rob; Colless, Matthew; Lara-Lopez, M.A.; Pimbblet, Kevin; Kafle, P R; Couch, Warrick


We present a pilot analysis of the influence of galaxy stellar mass and cluster environment on the probability of slow rotation in 22 central galaxies at mean redshift z = 0.07. This includes new integral-field observations of five central galaxies selected from the Sloan Digital Sky Survey, observed with the SPIRAL integral-field spectrograph on the Anglo-Australian Telescope. The composite sample presented here spans a wide range of stellar masses, 10.9 < log( * M M) < 12.0, and are...[Show more]
