A full appreciation of the role played by gas metallicity (Z), star-formation rate (SFR), and stellar mass (M*) is fundamental to understanding how galaxies form and evolve. Using data from the SDSS-DR7 and the GAMA surveys we study the Fundamental Plane for star-forming galaxies. Our analysis allows us to confirm the existence of a Fundamental Plane, for which stellar mass=f(Z, SFR) in star-forming galaxies.
