Abstract

The importance of studying the morphology of galaxies at large redshift is considered. Some speculative estimates concerning the possibility of recognizing the distant counterparts of the nearby morphological standards are included. Even though the high angular resolution data that the HST will provide is not yet available, there are indirect ways to infer distant galaxy morphology. I review three of the most frequently used methods: (a) comparing spectral energy distributions of nearby and distant galaxies, (b) studying the populations of galaxies in clusters of galaxies at various z, and (c) comparing faint galaxy counts and color distributions with the predictions of detailed models.
