Low costs of adaptation to dietary restriction

Roy Moger-Reischer, Elizabeth Snider, Kelsey McKenzie & Jay Lennon
Dietary restriction (DR) is the most successful and widespread means of extending organismal lifespan. However, the evolutionary basis of life extension under DR remains uncertain. The traditional evolutionary explanation is that when organisms experience DR, they allocate endogenous resources to survival and postpone reproduction until conditions improve. However, this life-extension strategy should be maladaptive if DR continues for multiple generations due to tradeoffs between longevity and reproduction. To test this prediction, we subjected the budding...
