Merger fraction for star-forming galaxies with SFRs above indicated distances above the MS for SDSS and KiDS data (top panel) and CANDELS data (bottom panel). To avoid low number statistics, only thresholds above which there are 50, or more, galaxies are shown. The SDSS (top panel, purple), KiDS (top panel, blue), and all CANDELS data show a trend of increasing merger fraction as the distance to the MS increases, although the CANDELS-z000 drops again above 0.62 log(M yr−1).

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.
