Abstract: The decrease, since z = 1, of the rest-frame UV luminosity density is related to global changes in morphology, color and emission lines properties of galaxies. This is apparently followed by a similar decrease of the rest-frame IR luminosity density. I discuss the relative contribution from the different galaxy morphological types to the observed evolution. The main contributors are compact galaxies observed in large number at optical wavelengths, and the sparse population of extincted & powerful starbursts observed by ISO. This latter population is made of large and massive galaxies mostly found in interacting systems, some of which could be leading to the formation of massive ellipticals at z < 1.
