abstract = "We present the analysis of the fundamental plane (FP) for a sample of 19 massive red-sequence galaxies ($M_{\star} >4\times10^{10} M_{\odot}$) in 3 known overdensities at $1.39z 11$) in our sample, we translate the FP zero-point evolution into a mass-to-light-ratio $M/L$ evolution finding $\Delta \log M/L_{B}=(-0.46\pm0.10)z$, $\Delta \log M/L_{B}=(-0.52\pm0.07)z$, to $\Delta \log M/L_{B}=(-0.55\pm0.10)z$, respectively. We assess the potential contribution of the galaxies structural and stellar velocity dispersion evolution to the evolution of the FP zero-point and find it to be $\sim$6-35 % of the FP zero-point evolution. The rate of $M/L$ evolution is consistent with galaxies evolving passively. By using single stellar population models, we find an average age of $2.33^{+0.86}_{-0.51}$ Gyr for the $\log M_{\star}/M_{\odot}>11$ galaxies in our massive and virialized cluster at $z=1.39$, $1.59^{+1.40}_{-0.62}$ Gyr in a massive but not virialized cluster at $z=1.46$, and $1.20^{+1.03}_{-0.47}$ Gyr in a protocluster at $z=1.61$. After accounting for the difference in the age of the Universe between redshifts, the ages of the galaxies in the three overdensities are consistent within the errors, with possibly a weak suggestion that galaxies in the most evolved structure are older.",

We assess the potential contribution of the galaxies structural and stellar velocity dispersion evolution to the evolution of the FP zero-point and find it to be $\sim$6-35 % of the FP zero-point evolution.
