Abstract: Wolf-Rayet (WR) galaxies are ideal objects for investigating the triggering mechanisms of star formation. Interactions between dwarf galaxies could explain the triggering in many cases. We present the conclusions of our morphological and spectroscopy analysis of the WR galaxies Mrk 1087 and HCG 31, where interactions between more than two galaxies seem to be operating. We emphasize the nature and probable evolution of the tidal dwarfs found in these particular WR galaxies.
