Abstract

There exists a gradual, but persistent, evolutionary effect in the galaxy popu-lation such that galaxy structure and morphology change with redshift. This galaxy structure-redshift relationship is such that an increasingly large fraction of all bright and massive galaxies at redshifts 2 < z < 3 are morphologically peculiar at all wavelengths from rest-frame ultraviolet to rest-frame optical. There are however many examples of morphologically selected spirals and ellipticals at these redshifts. At lower redshifts, the bright galaxy population smoothly transforms into normal ellipticals and spirals. The rate of this transformation strongly depends on redshift, with the swiftest evolution occurring between 1 < z < 2. This review characterizes the galaxy structure-redshift relationship, discusses its various physical causes, and how these are revealing the mechanisms responsible for galaxy formation.
