Phase space between effective population size (N) and deletion rate upon duplication (λ) showing the region where genome size can increase by genetic drift (shaded region). The solid line corresponds to the limit λN = 1/12 (strict), whilst the dashed line to λN = 1 (soft). λ μ is assumed. Six different organisms are contextualized (S. enterica, S. cerevisiae, D. melanogaster, C. elegans, A. thaliana, and H. sapiens). All λ values correspond to empirical estimations, except the value for the plant, which is a prediction
