We present the spatial clustering of red galaxies from z=0.2 to z=1.0, measured from the 9 square degree Bootes field of the NOAO Deep Wide-field and IRAC shallow surveys. Galaxy clustering as a function of redshift is a key testable prediction of models of galaxy formation and evolution. In particular, the clustering of galaxies should be a strong function of dark matter halo mass. Using photometric redshifts, whose accuracy has been verified with spectroscopy, we have been able to measure galaxy clustering as a function of both absolute magnitude and redshift. The most luminous galaxies in our sample exhibit stronger clustering than L* galaxies. We also find remarkably little evolution of the spatial correlation function from z=1 until the present epoch.
