2004A&A...428..373B Stellar populations in Active Galactic Nuclei III C. Boisson, M. Joly, D. Pelat and M. J. Ward Received 4 February 2004 / Accepted 21 July 2004 In this paper we apply the stellar population synthesis method previously described in Boisson et al. (2000) to five more AGN. The analysis of these new data strengthen our previous conclusions: i) homogeneity of the stellar population within a class of nuclear activity regardless of the morphological type of the host galaxy; ii) populations within the nuclear regions of LINERs and Seyfert 2s are different: LINERs have a very old metal-rich population while in the Seyfert 2s a contribution of a weak burst of star formation is observed together with the old high metallicity component; iii) in the circum-nuclar region (200 pc <= D<=1 kpc) of all the active galaxies in our sample, except for NGC 2992, we detect an old burst of star formation (0.2-1 Gyr),which is contrary to what is observed in normal galaxies. We note that the broad OI {lambda}8446 {angstrom} emission line detected in the spectrum of the nucleus of NGC 2992 confirms its classification as a Seyfert 1. Keywords: galaxies: stellar content, galaxies: active
