Maximum community growth rate and optimality degree in the two-species model for growth on ethanol, lactate, and pyruvate. a Maximum community growth rate as function of the community composition (F DV: biomass fraction of D. vulgaris; the fraction of M. maripaludis is 1-F DV ) in the two-species model for growth on ethanol (red, dashed), lactate (blue, dotted), and pyruvate (black, solid) versus relative biomass abundance of D. vulgaris. b Optimality degree (OptDeg) for the two-species model for growth on ethanol (red, dashed), lactate (blue, dotted), and pyruvate (black, solid) versus relative biomass abundance of D. vulgaris. The maximum OptDeg gives the predicted operation point. The OptDegs were calculated for the respective maximum community growth rates for the different biomass compositions (see also Fig. 2)
