Inconvenient Tales of Dinosaurs.
The Co-Evolution of Galaxies and Black Holes

Abstract:   The observational data offers important constraints on the evolutionary history of massive black holes in galaxies. We'll review the state of claims on this subject. Uncertainties in the mass function for very low and very high mass objects, and in the scatter in the correlations between BH and galaxy bulk properties, together with selection effects, make it difficult to draw strong conclusions about the mutual evolution of BH and galaxies.
