This article is a short introduction to super-Brownian motion. Some of its properties are discussed but our main objective is to describe a number of limit theorems which show super-Brownian motion is a universal limit for rescaled spatial stochastic systems at criticality above a critical dimenson. These systems include the voter model, the contact process and critical oriented percolation.
