Nearby groups and clusters provide laboratories to study the impact of environment on the properties of member galaxies, including gas content, star formation rates, morphology, and nuclear activity. This meeting focused on the observed gas content and star formation properties of galaxies in groups and clusters in the local universe, and the current theoretical understanding of the dominant physical mechanisms at work.
