The DEEP2 and COMBO-17 surveys are compared to study luminosity functions of red and blue galaxies to z ~ 1. The two surveys have different methods and sensitivities, but nevertheless results agree. After z ~ 1, M has dimmed by 1.2-1.3 mag for all colors of galaxies, ϕ* for blue galaxies has hardly changed, and ϕ* for red galaxies has at least doubled (our formal value is ~0.5 dex). Luminosity density jB has fallen by 0.6 dex for blue galaxies but has remained nearly constant for red galaxies… 
The Red-Sequence Luminosity Function in Galaxy Clusters since z ~ 1
We use a statistical sample of ~500 rich clusters taken from 72 deg2 of the Red-Sequence Cluster Survey (RCS-1) to study the evolution of ~30,000 red-sequence galaxies in clusters over the redshift
Luminosity Function Constraints on the Evolution of Massive Red Galaxies since z ~ 0.9
We measure the evolution of the luminous red galaxy (LRG) luminosity function in the redshift range 0.1 < z < 0.9 using samples of galaxies from the Sloan Digital Sky Survey as well as new

Recent arrival of faint cluster galaxies on the red sequence: luminosity functions from 119 deg2 of CFHTLS
The global star formation rate has decreased significantly since z ∼ 1, for reasons that are not well understood. Red-sequence galaxies, dominating in galaxy clusters, represent the population that
