Over the last 20 years we have understood the role that stellar mass has inregulating the star formation history of galaxies, at least over the redshiftrange 0 < z < 2. Here I present an analysis of the star formation histories ofsome 75,000 galaxies in the redshift range 0.5 < z < 1.3 from the VIMOS PublicExtragalactic Redshift Survey (VIPERS), and primarily of the very high massobjects observed in that survey, that shows how other parameters play an equally important role in shaping the overall evolution of galaxies, and their transition from the blue cloud to the red sequence.
