From: Home and away- the evolutionary dynamics of homing endonucleases

Figure 6

A phase diagram depicting the evolutionary fate of the Z allele, in color scale (Right), after an invasion by X' allele, a host sequence to which homing is more difficult, as a function of the parameters of X': the reduced homing ability (h') and the cost to the host (r). The colors correspond to the average Z frequency in the last 104 of 106 generations, u = 10-4, v = 10-6, and the rest of the parameters were chosen for a high value of z (0.733) in a stable equilibrium: s = 10-2, t = 10-3, h = 0.0123.
