Let M be a hyperbolic 3-manifold. A geodesic plane in M is a totally geodesic immersion of the hyperbolic plane into M. In this talk we will give an overview of some results which highlight how geometric, topological, and arithmetic properties of M are related to the behavior of geodesic planes in M. This talk is based on joint projects with McMullen and Oh, and in another direction with Margulis.
