Fig. 3


Comparison between the mass function in clusters and in the field at different redshifts. At low-z, red filled squares: PM2GC (general field); cyan empty squares: Baldry et al. (2008) (general field); blue empty triangles: WINGS (clusters). At intermediate-z, black crosses: ICBS (field); black skeleton triangles: ICBS (clusters). At higher-z: magenta skeleton stars: Pozzetti et al. (2010) (field); green filled triangles EDisCS (clusters). Mass functions are normalised using the total integrated stellar mass in the range 11.2 < log M/M < 11.7 (the last bin in the ICBS). Errorbars and in-set as in Fig. 2. The evolution of the shape of the mass function seems not to depend on environment, being similar in clusters and in the field. However, in all cases the amount of growth as a function of cosmic time is different at the low- and high-mass ends.
