Data from: Offspring of older parents are smaller—but no less bilaterally symmetrical—than offspring of younger parents in the aquatic plant Lemna turionifera

Eric J. Ankutowicz & Robert A. Laird
Offspring quality decreases with parental age in many taxa, with offspring of older parents exhibiting reduced lifespan, reproductive capacity, and fitness, compared to offspring of younger parents. These ‘parental age effects’, whose consequences arise in the next generation, can be considered as manifestations of parental senescence, in addition to the more familiar age-related declines in parent-generation survival and reproduction. Parental age effects are important because they may have feedback effects on the evolution of demographic...
