Most of the galaxies in this survey have been small- to medium-sized systems, in direct contrast to the last two classes we will visit here: luminous infrared galaxies (LIRGs) and ultra-luminous infrared galaxies (ULIRGs).
Observations of luminous (LIRG) and ultra-luminous infrared galaxies (ULIRGS) also were described.
Many studies have demonstrated that when a physical activity is perceived to be gender appropriate, self-competence beliefs will be stronger than when the activity is perceived to be gender inappropriate (Lee, Fredenburg, Belcher, & Cleveland, 1999; Lirg, George, Chase, & Ferguson, 1996; Solmon, Lee, Belcher, Harrison, & Wells, 2003).
