The publication of themorphology - densityrelation by Alan Dressler in 1980 brought into the limelight the role played by environment in the formation and evolution of galaxies. The symposiumEnvironment and the Formation of Galaxies: 30 years later, was organised with the purpose of establishing the environmental impact on the evolution of galaxies and its dependence on look-back time. Special emphasis was placed on the physical mechanisms that are responsible for transforming galaxies once they are accreted by a group or a cluster, including the observable imprint left in the galaxy HI distribution.

Other major topics of the symposium were the environmental dependence of galaxy properties at z '¥ 1 and the implementation of environmental effects in cosmological models of galaxy formation and evolution.

This book presents the edited proceedings of this stimulating meeting.
