(Received 5 January 2001 / Accepted 15 October 2001 )

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
