Fig. 2


Mass distribution of MDCs within d ≤ 4.5 kpc. The Poisson error of each bin is shown as a grey line above the 10σrms completeness limit of 50 M, the power-law fit is shown in a solid black line. Hashed area shows the distribution of the brightest cores () per clump. Dashed lines show the slope of the CMF/IMF (André et al. 2014) and CO clumps (Kramer et al. 1998).
