Studies with the fruit fly,Drosophila melanogaster , have repeatedly shown that selection for postponed reproduction leads to increases in mean life span and increased stress resistance; including increased resistance to desiccation, starvation and ethanol vapors. We show that desiccation resistance declines with age in both shortand long-lived flies suggesting that desiccation resistance may serve as a useful biomarker for aging-related declines in physiological performance. We examined the… CONTINUE READING
