Abstract: We present some global results of the PhD thesis research carried out by López-Sánchez (2006), in which a detailed morphological, photometric and spectroscopic analysis of a sample of 20 Wolf–Rayet (WR) galaxies was carried out. The main aims are the study of the star formation and O and WR stellar populations in these galaxies, and the role that interactions between low surface companion objects have in the triggering of the bursts. We analyze the morphology, stellar populations, physical conditions, chemical abundances, and kinematics of the ionized gas, as well as the star formation activity of each system.
