  1. Per environment the values of the homeostasis targets (tar A, tar X), passive diffusion rate, catabolic conversion stoichiometry and degradation rate are listed. The native environment was used for all populations in the initial phase of homeostasis evolution. The upper part of the table defines the sensable environments, in which tar A and tar X remain constant. In each evolutionary experiment populations are switched repeatedly between the native and novel environment. For an extended list of simulation parameters see Additional file 1: Table S1
