Fig. 7

a Initial (orange) and stationary (purple) convex hull of the rescaled proteome fractions \(\hat \varphi _{\sigma i}\), for a system with NS = 10 and NR = 3 when \(\tau _\sigma \,\lesssim\, 1\). b Temporal biomass dynamics of the system represented in a. c Increasing the values of τσ leads to extinctions. Shown are the stationary values of species’ biomasses calculated by multiplying the values τσ of panels a, b by a factor y > 1, while keeping the other parameters unchanged. As y increases, the system shifts from a diverse stationary state for y = 1 to states in which only few species survive. The parameters and the initial conditions were drawn from pre-assigned random distributions (see Supplementary Information for more information). All parameters other than y are identical in the three panels.
