4. Conclusions

The major finding revealed by the data presented in this work is that NGC 7129 FIRS 2 can be considered as an intermediate-mass counterpart of the low-mass Class 0 objects; in other words, we could describe FIRS 2 as an intermediate-mass submillimetre protostar. The source is probably the youngest object of its kind known at present, and will probably evolve into an HAeBe star. We consider it is of high interest to find more similar objects, so that a low-mass/intermediate-mass submillimetre protostar sample could be studied as is done with the more evolved T Tauri/HAeBe stars.
