Mass growth profiles (left), specific-SFRs (centre) and SFRs (right) extracted from the evolution of the SFR–ℳ relation of star-forming galaxies of Tomczak et al. (2016). Mass loss owing to stellar evolution is accounted for according to Eq. (16) of Moster et al. (2013). The coloured curves indicate how the evolution of galaxies that evolve along the main star-forming sequence varies as a function of their final stellar mass, from low-mass galaxies (ℳ = 1010.15M⊙; blue) to those near the high-mass limit of the blue cloud (1011.15M⊙; dark red).
