Abstract

We present some global results of the PhD Thesis carried out by Lopez-Sanchez (2006), in which a detailed morphological, photometrical and spectroscopical analysis of a, sample of 20 Wolf-Rayet (WR) galaxies was realized. The main aims are the study of the star formation and O and WR stellar populations in these galaxies and the role that interactions between low surface companion objects have in the triggering of the bursts. We analyze the morphology, stellar populations, physical conditions, chemical abundances and kinematics of the ionized gas, and star-formation activity of each system.
