Data from: Decades of field data reveal that turtles senesce in the wild

Daniel A. Warner, David A. W. Miller, Anne M. Bronikowski & Fredric J. Janzen
Lifespan and aging rates vary considerably across taxa; thus, understanding the factors that lead to this variation is a primary goal in biology and has ramifications for understanding constraints and flexibility in human aging. Theory predicts that senescence—declining reproduction and increasing mortality with advancing age—evolves when selection against harmful mutations is weaker at old ages relative to young ages or when selection favors pleiotropic alleles with beneficial effects early in life despite late-life costs. However,...
