Abstract

We discuss the build-up of the colour-magnitude relation. The colour-magnitude relation first appears at the bright end and the faint end appears later. Interestingly, the build-up of colour-magnitude relation is delayed in low density environments. We suggest that galaxies follow the environment-dependent down-sizing evolution.
