2002AJ....124..782V BAR GALAXIES AND THEIR ENVIRONMENTS SIDNEY VAN DEN BERGH Dominion Astrophysical Observatory, Herzberg Institute of Astrophysics, National Research Council of Canada, 5071 West Saanich Road, Victoria, BC V9E 2E7, Canada; sidney.vandenbergh@nrc.ca Received 2002 March 5; accepted 2002 May 8 ABSTRACT The prints of the Palomar Sky Survey, luminosity classifications, and radial velocities were used to assign all northern Shapley-Ames galaxies to either (1) field, (2) group, or (3) cluster environments. This information for 930 galaxies shows no evidence for a dependence of bar frequency on galaxy environment. This suggests that the formation of a bar in a disk galaxy is mainly determined by the properties of the parent galaxy, rather than by the characteristics of its environment. Key words: galaxies: clusters: general - galaxies: spiral
