As Above, So Below

Story on Science Daily...first paragraph:

Do Galaxies Follow Darwinian Evolution?

Using VIMOS on ESO's Very Large Telescope, a team of French and Italian astronomers have shown the strong influence the environment exerts on the way galaxies form and evolve. The scientists have for the first time charted remote parts of the Universe, showing that the distribution of galaxies has considerably evolved with time, depending on the galaxies' immediate surroundings. This surprising discovery poses new challenges for theories of the formation and evolution of galaxies.
The graphic that goes with the story is very thought-provoking as well.
