Evolution in the merger rate as a function of redshift is in principle the key observable testing hierarchical models for the formation and evolution of galaxies. However, in practice, direct measurement of this quantity has proven difficult. In this opening review I outline the current best estimates for the merger rate as a function of cosmic epoch, focusing mostly upon recent advances made possible by deep ground-based redshift surveys and morphological studies undertaken with HST. I argue… Expand
