Retarded Evolution of Low-Mass Galaxies in Voids?

We analyze possible differences in the global environments of very metal-poor BCGs with that of typical metallicity BCGs, basing on the parameter DNN -distance to the nearest "luminous" galaxy. We find very significant difference suggesting that a higher fraction of unevolved dwarfs reside in 'voids'.
