Scatter plots of GMAs in different environments. Colors and symbols are the same as those in Figure 5. (a) Mc vs. Rc. The black solid line indicates the best fit of the McRc relation with all GMAs. The slope is 1.01 ± 0.14. The CCs of each environment are provided in the lower-right corner of the plot. (b) σc vs. Rc. The best fit with all populations is shown by a black line. The slope of the best fit is presented in the lower-right corner along with the CCs of each environment. (c) ΣSFR vs. ﹩{{\rm{\Sigma }}}_{{{\rm{H}}}_{2}}﹩, the so-called Kennicutt–Schmidt relation. The three dashed lines denote SFE values of 10−10 (bottom), 10−9(middle), and 10−8 (top) yr−1. The derived slopes of each environment are shown in the lower-right corner of the plot. Panels (d), (e), and (f) display αvir vs. Mc, Σ SFR, and SFE, respectively.
