a) Location of EELGs and SFGs in the SFR-M∗ plane. The gray density contours show the position of the SFG-20k sample. The inner and outer contours enclose 68% and 99% of the sample, respectively. Big stars show the median values for EELGs (see Table 3). Solid, dot-dashed, and dashed lines show the main sequence (MS) of galaxies at z = 0 (Whitaker et al. 2012), z ~ 0.7 (Noeske et al. 2007), and z ~ 1 (Elbaz et al. 2007), respectively. b) Same as a) but divided into four redshift bins. Solid and dashed colored lines show the MS of galaxies at each redshift and their extrapolation to the low-mass regime, respectively, according to Whitaker et al. (2012). Dotted lines indicate constant sSFR from 10-11 yr-1 (bottom left) to 10-6 yr-1 (upper right). At all redshifts the EELGs follow nearly the same relation, which is offset by ≳1 dex from the local MS
