Abstract

Extragalactic X-ray surveys over the past decade have dramatically
improved our understanding of the majority populations of active
galactic nuclei (AGNs) over most of the history of the Universe. In
this talk I will focus on the discoveries made from X-ray surveys on
the ecology of distant AGNs - the connection between the growing black
holes at the centre of galaxies and the larger-scale environment.
