Starforming and Starbursting

    Are there any differences between Starforming Galxaxies and Starbursting Galaxies ?

    I'm not sure, but I think it's a somewhat arbitrary division, with 'starbursting' having far more intense star-formation, and perhaps over a shorter estimated period, than 'starforming'.
