Redshift maps of galaxies in the Universe are distorted by the peculiar velocities of galaxies along the line of sight. The amplitude of the distortions on large, linear scales yields a measurement of the linear redshift distortion parameter, which is β ≈ Ω 0.6 0 /b in standard cosmology with cosmological density Ω 0 and light-to-mass bias b. All measurements of β from linear redshift distortions published up to mid 1997 are reviewed.
