In this review I will describe a number of recent advances in extragalactic astronomy. First of all I will describe our current best estimates of the star formation history of the Universe. Then I will describe measurements of local galaxies and their stellar populations, concentrating on measurements of the luminosity functions and stellar population compositions of the different kinds of galaxies. Finally, I will investigate the relationship between these two sets of results. The ultimate aim… Expand
