Redshift surveys of large numbers galaxies at z > 0.5
have been made possible by a new generation of efficient
multi-object spectrographs. These new surveys allow us
to characterize for the first time the population of "normal"
galaxies at a time when the Universe was less than half its
present age. Evolution in the luminosity function and in the
clustering of galaxies can be traced, while detailed studies
of the spectra and morphologies of individual galaxies give
clues about the physical processes controlling the evolution.
