Fig. 5


The projected rotational velocity distribution found by Hunter et al. (2008b) for non-binary, non-supergiant stars of this sample with masses  ≤ 25 M (black line). This is used as our initial rotational velocity distribution. The gray histogram represents the rotational velocity distribution of our simulated population, after application of all selection effects described in Sect. 3.3.
