Galaxy Morphology is a major review article written for a new book series titled
"Planets, Stars, and Stellar Systems" (or PSSS). PSSS is a "compendium of modern astronomical
research covering subjects of key interest to the main fields of contemporary astronomy," according
to the PSSS webpage (see link at right).
Galaxy Morphology covers issues of both high and low redshift galaxies, and
will be part of Volume 6, titled "Extragalactic Astronomy and Cosmology."
PSSS is designed to follow in the
footsteps of the old "Stars and Stellar Systems" series published in the 1960s and 70s.
