ALLSMOG sample plotted in the M∗−SFR plane. The dashed line indicates the location of the local MS relation obtained by Renzini & Peng (2015), and the dotted lines show the intrinsic scatter about the MS derived using optical surveys (Peng et al. 2010). The plot also displays a sub-sample of the COLD GASS survey including only galaxies selected as “star-forming” according to their position on the classical BPT diagram as explained in Sect. 5.
