"The SpARCS z > 1 Cluster Survey"
Abstract. The SpARCS survey is one of the largest surveys designed to detect clusters of galaxies at z > 1. It has discovered hundreds of new IR-selected clusters in the 50 square degree Spitzer SWIRE Legacy Fields. The SpARCS team has been putting huge effort into obtaining spectroscopic and multi-wavelength follow up of the most interesting systems. I will show examples of recently confirmed high redshift clusters, and discuss what we are learning about galaxy evolution in the densest of environments from this unique wide-field IR survey.
