Fig SI. Virus–host rank-abundance curves as functions of the host growth rate μ and effective viral adsorption coefficient β in the nested infection model. Defence strategists are to the left (slow growing), and competition strategists to the right (fast growing). Viruses with low effective adsorption coefficients are generalists, while viruses with high effective adsorption coefficients are specialists. Trade-offs are set to τ = 0.5 (left), 2 (middle), and 3.5 (right). Note the different scales on the y-axes for the virus distributions. The logarithmic y-axes for the host distribution was used to include the fastest growing host group H1.
