ADC_Keywords: Clusters, galaxy ; Galaxies, photometry Keywords: galaxies: dwarf - galaxies: elliptical and lenticular, cD - galaxies: evolution - galaxies: halos - galaxies: star clusters - globular clusters: general Abstract: The fraction of stellar mass contained in globular clusters (GCs), also measured by number as the specific frequency, is a fundamental quantity that reflects both a galaxy's early star formation and its entire merging history. We present specific frequencies, luminosities, and mass fractions for the globular cluster systems of 100 early-type galaxies in the ACS Virgo Cluster Survey, the largest homogeneous catalog of its kind. Description: The ACS Virgo Cluster Survey is a large program to image 100 early-type galaxies in the Virgo Cluster with the Hubble Space Telescope (HST) Advanced Camera for Surveys (ACS).
