Abstract

We investigate UV and optical spectra of a sample of nearby early-type galaxies with evidence of nuclear line emission. The spectral signatures of various contributors to the UV, such as the interstellar medium and various stellar populations are analyzed and compared with the optical spectral properties. We discuss the impact of these effects on the observational properties of galaxy evolution.
