Optical photographs of galaxies give little or no indication of on-going star formation at the early end of the Hubble sequence. Few or no star forming regions can be resolved in the disks of SO and early-type spiral galaxies. However, several lines of evidence indicate that a high rate of star formation is occurring at the centers of many SO and early-type spiral galaxies, particularly those with bars.
