Title: Augmenting the SFR-M* Plane with Galaxy Star Formation History Trajectories
Cycle: 30

Abstract
Incorporating information from the star formation histories (SFH) of individual galaxies into traditional 'snapshots' of scaling relations will provide transformative advances in our understanding of galaxy populations and star formation over cosmic time. Over the past years, improved methods to recover SFH information applied to high-quality multi-wavelength photometric surveys have allowed for significant gains in SFH reconstruction. We propose to augment the information in the SFR-M* plane with trajectories from the derived SFHs of galaxies at 0.5
