A comparison of the slope (a) as a function of redshift (z) with studies from the literature that extend down to M* < 1010 M⊙ near our redshift range. Our best-fit (bias-corrected) slope from Eq. (11) is shown by the large star. As most studies have probed the slope in bins of redshift, we also include our results obtained using non-evolving redshift bins (Eqs. (14), (15) and (16); smaller blue stars). The literature results are from Renzini & Peng (2015), RP15),Kurczynski et al. (2016), K16), Bisigello et al. (2018), B18) and the low-mass (M* ≲ 1010 M⊙) power-law slopes from Whitaker et al. (2014), W14) and Lee et al. (2015), L15). We also add [SP14],Speagle2014 for reference, though it is inferred at higher masses. We indicate the field and SFR-tracer in brackets, though note that distinct calibrations for the same tracer may be used in different studies. In addition, we add the slopes predicted by (semi-)analytical models; Bouché et al. (2010), B10), Mitchell et al. (2014), M14), Mitra et al. (2015), Mi15), Cattaneo et al. (2017), C17), and hydrodynamical simulations; Sparre et al. (2015), Sp15), Furlong et al. (2015), F15), Sparre et al. (2017), Sp17).
