  • We analyze star formation (SF) as a function of stellar mass (M☉) and redshift z in the All-Wavelength Extended Groth Strip International Survey. For 2905 field galaxies, complete to 10^10(10^10.8 )M at z < 0.7(1), with Keck spectroscopic redshifts out to z = 1.1, we compile SF rates (SFRs) from emission lines, GALEX, and Spitzer MIPS 24 µm photometry, optical-NIR M* measurements, and HST morphologies. Galaxies with reliable signs of SF form a distinct “main sequence” (MS), with a limited… CONTINUE READING
