Model organisms like Drosophila melanogaster or Caenorhabditis elegans have revealed genes that influence senescence and the evolvability of senescence. We are interested instead in evaluating why and how senescence evolves in natural populations. To do so, we are taking the ecological geneticist's perspective of comparing natural populations that differ in factors that are predicted to influence the evolution of senescence and are evaluating whether senescence has evolved in the predicted… Expand
