Galaxies form and evolve in the context of their large-scale environments. Very large spectroscopic surveys (e.g., SDSS, GAMA) have been invaluable for quantifying this connection in the local universe. We consider advances in understanding galaxy evolution that would be enabled by very large, high- density spectroscopic surveys at high redshifts.
