Abstract
We present optical and millimetric data for 47 intermediate Hubble type spiral galaxies located either in dense environments or in the field. We compare correlations between global parameters, such as far-infrared luminosity, blue luminosity, and total molecular gas content, with other samples of galaxies, including normal galaxies, clusters and ultraluminous infrared galaxies. We find that overall our sample is a well-defined subset of these other samples of galaxies.


Key words: galaxies: interactions -- general -- stellar content
