Evolution in the number density of massive star-forming galaxies (ℳ > 1011M and d4000 < 1.55) from VIPERS (blue solid points) and the zCOSMOS 20K bright galaxy sample (magenta open squares) over 0.5 ≤ z< 1.0. The number of massive blue-cloud VIPERS galaxies in each redshift interval are indicated in blue. The black line and grey shaded region indicates the corresponding number density and 1σ confidence limits for the SDSS.
