The last decade has seen the discovery of a growing population of planetary-mass and substellar companions (~<20 MJup) to young stars which are often still in the star-forming regions where they formed.

The evolution (or not) of the star formation efficiency, dust content, and duty cycle of high-z galaxies

A relatively simple model has emerged in recent years that can explain the bulk properties of high redshift galaxies: star formation is fueled by the inflow of pristine material from the intergalactic medium, and proceeds with an efficiency that depends strongly on the mass of a galaxy's parent d
