Fig. 3


Construction of the volume-limited galaxy subsamples with different luminosity (upper panel) and stellar mass (lower panel). In both figures the grey dots represent the distribution of VUDS galaxies as a function of spectroscopic redshift z. At each redshift UV band, absolute magnitudes and stellar masses are normalized to the characteristic absolute magnitudes or to the characteristic stellar mass, respectively (see Sect. 2.2). The different colour lines delineate the selection cuts for selected UV absolute magnitude and stellar mass subsamples as defined in Tables 2 and 3. The dashed black line represents the evolution of the not corrected characteristic UV absolute magnitude (upper panel) or characteristic stellar mass M* (lower panel). The grey line indicates the volume limit of the VUDS sample.
