J/ApJ/542/673    Morphological types of galaxies in clusters   (Fasano+, 2000)

The evolution of the galactic morphological types in clusters. Fasano G., Poggianti B.M., Couch W.J., Bettoni D., Kjaergaard P., Moles M. <Astrophys. J. 542, 673 (2000)> =2000ApJ...542..673F
ADC_Keywords: Clusters, galaxy ; Morphology ; Redshifts Keywords: galaxies: clusters: general - galaxies: evolution - galaxies: structure Abstract: The morphological types of galaxies in nine clusters in the redshift range 0.1≲z≲0.25 are derived from very good seeing images taken at the North Optical Telescope (NOT) and the La Silla-Danish telescopes, with all galaxies at MV←20 and within the central ∼1Mpc2 area being classified. With the purpose of investigating the evolution of the fraction of different morphological types with redshift, we compare our results with the morphological content of nine distant clusters studied by the MORPHS group, five clusters observed with HST/WFPC2 at redshift z=0.2-0.3, and Dressler's large sample of nearby clusters.
