The relationships between stellar mass (left panels) and gas fraction (right panels) with oxygen abundance (upper panels) and residual oxygen abundance (lower panels) obtained from the best polynomial fit (solid black line in the upper left panel). Dividing the sample by Hi content demonstrates that gas content is anti-correlated with metallicity for Hi normal galaxies (blue open circles). Furthermore Hi deficient systems (red solid circles) are preferentially found at higher metallicities. Such trends remain when eliminating the stellar mass dependency.

Current usage metrics show cumulative count of Article Views (full-text article views including HTML views, PDF and ePub downloads, according to the available data) and Abstracts Views on Vision4Press platform.

Data correspond to usage on the plateform after 2015. The current usage metrics is available 48-96 hours after online publication and is updated daily on week days.

Initial download of the metrics may take a while.
