We describe results of optical and near-IR observations of a large spectroscopic sample of star-forming galaxies photometrically-selected to lie in the redshift range 1.4≾z≾2.5, often called the “redshift desert” because of historical difficulty in obtaining spectroscopic redshifts in this range. We show that the former “redshift desert” is now very much open to observation.
