These data were used to determine galaxy properties (ages, metallicities, and α-element enhancements) and allowed a comparison with the parameters determined for a sample of galaxies in lower density environments studied by Gonzalez (1993, Ph.D. thesis, Univ. California, Santa Cruz). The stellar population parameters were derived by comparison to single stellar population models of Thomas et al. (Cat. J/ApJ/621/673) and to a new set of simple stellar population models for the indices Mg2, Fe5270, and Fe5335 based on synthetic spectra. These models, based on an updated version of the fitting functions presented in Barbuy et al. (Cat. J/A+A/404/661), are fully described here. File Summary:
