Data from: Cumulative early life adversity predicts longevity in wild baboons

Jenny Tung, Jeanne Altmann, Elizabeth A. Archie & Susan C. Alberts
In humans and other animals, harsh circumstances in early life predict morbidity and mortality in adulthood. Multiple adverse conditions are thought to be especially toxic, but this hypothesis has rarely been tested in a prospective, longitudinal framework, especially in long-lived mammals. Here we use prospective data on 196 wild female baboons to show that cumulative early adversity predicts natural adult lifespan.
