Steady-state host strain diversity. Plots show: Left: Graphical interpretation of the method for finding steady-state host strain diversity x as x=iwhere i is the lowest integer such that <a onClick="popup('http://www.biomedcentral.com/1471-2148/13/17/mathml/M97','MathML',630,470);return false;" target="_blank" href="http://www.biomedcentral.com/1471-2148/13/17/mathml/M97">View MathML</a>. Dashed line shows the calculated bacterial diversity. Right: Steady-state host strain diversity x as a function of resource supply R0. Dashed line shows diversity for R0=2.2μgml−1. Both plots assume a pool of potential host strains h1,..,h11with unique growth scaling factors {δ1,δ2,..,δ10,δ11}={1.2,1.16,..,0.84,0.8}. Parameters as given in Table 1.
