1. Senescence is intimately connected with physiological state, which is affected by the environment. Two aspects of the environment – stress and caloric intake – are investigated in the context of senescence, particularly in the context of repair of damage caused by endogenous and exogenous stressors. 2. In a simple life-history model, the organism is characterized by size (affecting reproductive success) and accumulated damage (affecting survival) at age. The modelled organism experiences an… CONTINUE READING
