The Age-old question: Evolutionary causes & ecological consequences of ageing in the wild

Cooper, Eve

Description

Iteroparous animals often express dramatic variation in life-history traits over the course of a lifetime. Understanding the evolutionary causes and ecological consequences of the age-related improvements and declines (i.e. senescence) in fitness-related traits is central to life-history theory. However, the evolution of ageing is highly complex, and poorly understood. Why is there such dramatic variability in ageing patterns not only across species, but also within species across individuals,...[Show more]
