Evolution of the brightest cluster galaxies: the influence of morphology, stellar mass and environment (2015)
Journal Article
Zhao, D., Aragón-Salamanca, A., & Conselice, C. J. (2015). Evolution of the brightest cluster galaxies: the influence of morphology, stellar mass and environment. Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society, 453(4), doi:10.1093/mnras/stv1940

Using a sample of 425 nearby brightest cluster galaxies (BCGs) from von der Linden et al., we study the relationship between their internal properties (stellar masses, structural parameters and morphologies) and their environment. More massive BCGs t... Read More about Evolution of the brightest cluster galaxies: the influence of morphology, stellar mass and environment.

The formation history of massive cluster galaxies as revealed by CARLA (2015)
Journal Article
Conselice, C. J., Hatch, N. A., Cooke, E. A., Cooke, E. A., Hatch, N. A., Rettura, A., …Stanford, S. A. (2015). The formation history of massive cluster galaxies as revealed by CARLA. Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society, 452(3), 2318-2336. https://doi.org/10.1093/mnras/stv1413

© 2015 The Authors. Published by Oxford University Press on behalf of the Royal Astronomical Society. We use a sample of 37 of the densest clusters and protoclusters across 1.3 ≤ z ≤ 3.2 from the Clusters Around Radio-Loud AGN (CARLA) survey to study...

Galaxy And Mass Assembly (GAMA): end of survey report and data release 2 (2015)
Journal Article
Liske, J., Baldry, I., Driver, S., Tuffs, R., Alpaslan, M., Andrae, E., …Wright, A. (2015). Galaxy And Mass Assembly (GAMA): end of survey report and data release 2. Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society, 452(2), https://doi.org/10.1093/mnras/stv1436

The Galaxy And Mass Assembly (GAMA) survey is one of the largest contemporary spectroscopic surveys of low redshift galaxies. Covering an area of∼286 deg2 (split among five survey regions) down to a limiting magnitude of r < 19.8 mag, we have collect...

The link between morphology and structure of brightest cluster galaxies: automatic identification of cDs (2015)
Journal Article
Zhao, D., Aragón-Salamanca, A., & Conselice, C. J. (2015). The link between morphology and structure of brightest cluster galaxies: automatic identification of cDs. Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society, 448(3), doi:10.1093/mnras/stv190

We study a large sample of 625 low-redshift brightest cluster galaxies (BCGs) and link their morphologies to their structural properties. We derive visual morphologies and find that ∼57 per cent of the BCGs are cD galaxies, ∼13 per cent are elliptica...

The SCUBA-2 cosmology legacy survey: ALMA resolves the rest-frame far-infrared emission of sub-millemeter galaxies (2015)
Journal Article
Conselice, C., Simpson, J., Smail, I., Swinbank, A., Almaini, O., Blain, A., …van der Werf, P. (2015). The SCUBA-2 cosmology legacy survey: ALMA resolves the rest-frame far-infrared emission of sub-millemeter galaxies. Astrophysical Journal, 799(1), 81. https://doi.org/10.1088/0004-637x/799/1/81

We present high-resolution (0’’.3) Atacama Large Millimeter Array 870 μm imaging of 52 sub-millimeter galaxies (SMGs) in the Ultra Deep Survey field to investigate the size and morphology of the sub-millimeter (sub-mm) emission on 2–10 kpc scales. We... Read More about The SCUBA-2 cosmology legacy survey: ALMA resolves the rest-frame far-infrared emission of sub-millemeter galaxies.

Galaxy And Mass Assembly (GAMA): mass-size relations of z < 0.1 galaxies subdivided by Sersic index, colour and morphology (2015)
Journal Article
Lange, R., Driver, S. P., Robotham, A. S., Kelvin, L. S., Graham, A. W., Alpaslan, M., …Wilkins, S. M. (2015). Galaxy And Mass Assembly (GAMA): mass-size relations of z < 0.1 galaxies subdivided by Sersic index, colour and morphology. Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society, 447(3), 2603-2630. doi:10.1093/mnras/stu2467

We use data from the Galaxy And Mass Assembly (GAMA) survey in the redshift range 0.01 < z < 0.1 (8399 galaxies in g to Ks bands) to derive the stellar mass–half-light radius relations for various divisions of ‘early’- and ‘late’-type samples. We fin... Read More about Galaxy And Mass Assembly (GAMA): mass-size relations of z < 0.1 galaxies subdivided by Sersic index, colour and morphology.
