Wijesinghe, D. B.; Hopkins, Andrew M.; Brough, Sarah; Taylor, E N; Norberg, P; Bauer, Amanda E; Brown, M J I; Cameron, E; Conselice, Christopher; Croom, S; Sharp, Robert; Liske, Jochen


We present a detailed investigation into the effects of galaxy environment on their star formation rates (SFRs) using galaxies observed in the Galaxy And Mass Assembly (GAMA) survey. We use three independent volume-limited samples of galaxies within z < 0.2 and M r < -17.8. We investigate the known SFR-density relationship and explore in detail the dependence of SFR on stellar mass and density. We show that the SFR-density trend is only visible when we include the passive galaxy population...[Show more]
