Abstract: Using the OVRO millimeter array, we have mapped the molecular gas in eight nearby Seyfert and LINER galaxies at 1'' (~ 100 pc) resolution. Each system shows a massive nuclear gas concentration, and many show strong evidence for non-circular or non-coplanar gas motions. In the three examples discussed here, warps or bars probably drive steady or episodic fueling of star formation and accretion at smaller scales.
