Abstract

Observations from the VLT and the HST show that the most luminous radio galaxies are excellent tracers of protoclusters at z > 2. Several on-going projects to find and study distant protoclusters are reviewed. After summarising the macro-properties of the identified clusters, the detection of various different galaxy populations are described. Finally, preliminary results on the properties of the protocluster members are presented and remarks are made on the galaxy sizes and morphologies. The Lyα - emitting protocluster galaxies are smaller than field Lyman break galaxies at the same redshift.
