Fig. 9.


SFR-M plane populated with (a) non-merging galaxies and (b) merging SDSS galaxies. The colour indicates the number density from low (light yellow) to high (dark purple). Overlaid in red is the MS that has been fitted to all star-forming galaxies. As can be seen, the distributions of the merging and non-merging galaxies are similar with respect to the plotted MS.
