CO observations as a diagnostic of possible environmental effects 1

Abstract

We have compared two samples of galaxies in very high and low density environments in order to study their physical properties and stablish any possible relation among them. This paper focus on the CO content as a diagnostic tool to examine galaxy properties such as the amount of molecular gas and the star formation efficiency. The similarities in star formation efficiency of the dense environments and the field galaxies suggest that the physical processes controling the formation of stars from the molecular gas are local rather than global.
