Measuring circulating antioxidants in wild birds.
Antioxidants protect against free radical damage, which is associated with various age-related pathologies. Antioxidants are also an important buffer against the respiratory burst of the immuneExpand

Adult and child malaria mortality in India: a nationally representative mortality survey
BACKGROUND National malaria death rates are difficult to assess because reliably diagnosed malaria is likely to be cured, and deaths in the community from undiagnosed malaria could be misattributedExpand

No simple answers for ecological immunology: relationships among immune indices at the individual level break down at the species level in waterfowl
Understanding immune function in the context of other life-history traits is crucial to understand the evolution of life histories, at both the individual and species levels. As the interest inExpand

Eleven Telomere, Epigenetic Clock, and Biomarker-Composite Quantifications of Biological Aging: Do They Measure the Same Thing?
The geroscience hypothesis posits that therapies to slow biological processes of aging can prevent disease and extend healthy years of life. To test such "geroprotective" therapies in humans, outcomeExpand

What Does Carotenoid-Dependent Coloration Tell? Plasma Carotenoid Level Signals Immunocompetence and Oxidative Stress State in Birds–A Meta-Analysis
Abstract Mechanisms maintaining honesty of sexual signals are far from resolved, limiting our understanding of sexual selection and potential important parts of physiology. Carotenoid pigmentedExpand

Interspecific Associations between Circulating Antioxidant Levels and Life‐History Variation in Birds
Antioxidants play an important role in protecting tissues against aging‐associated oxidative damage and are thus prime candidates for relating physiological mechanisms to variation in life histories.Expand

Immunosenescence and Inflamm-Aging As Two Sides of the Same Coin: Friends or Foes?
The immune system is the most important protective physiological system of the organism. It has many connections with other systems and is, in fact, often considered as part of the largerExpand

No simple measures for antioxidant status in birds: complexity in inter‐ and intraspecific correlations among circulating antioxidant types
Summary 1. Recently, ecologists have shown interest in examining antioxidant protection in wild animals; carotenoids in particular have received attention as antioxidants that play an important roleExpand

Physiological regulatory networks: ecological roles and evolutionary constraints.
Ecological and evolutionary physiology has traditionally focused on one aspect of physiology at a time. Here, we discuss the implications of considering physiological regulatory networks (PRNs) asExpand
