Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The development of large ground-based telescopes and sensitive large format detectors, as well as the develepment of various techniques for the selection of high-z galaxies enabled us to construct large samples of galaxies in the early universe, as reported in the many contributions in this proceedings. The next major step for the comprehensive understanding of the galaxy evolution would be to explore the relationship of galaxies selected with different criteria at different epochs and find links between them. In this contribution we present the properties of Lyman break galaxies (LBGs) at z∼5 obtained by deep and wide blank field surveys, and through the comparison with samples at lower redshift ranges we discuss the evolution of star-forming galaxies in the early universe.
