  • A large sample of spectroscopically confirmed star-forming galaxies at redshifts 1.4 ≤ z_(spec) ≤ 3.7, with complementary imaging in the near- and mid-IR from the ground and from the Hubble Space Telescope and Spitzer Space Telescope, is used to infer the average star formation histories (SFHs) of typical galaxies from z ∼ 2 to 7. For a subset of 302 galaxies at 1.5 ≤ z_(spec) < 2.6, we perform a detailed comparison of star formation rates (SFRs) determined from spectral energy distribution… CONTINUE READING
