Data from: Senescence in duckweed: age-related declines in survival, reproduction, and offspring quality

Patrick M. Barks & Robert A. Laird
1. As they grow old, most organisms experience progressive physiological deterioration resulting in declining rates of survival and reproduction – a seemingly maladaptive phenomenon known as senescence. 2. Although senescence is usually defined with respect only to survival and reproduction, a third component of fitness, offspring quality, may also decline with age. Few studies, however, have assessed age-related changes in offspring quality using measures that truly reflect fitness. 3. In a controlled environment, we tested...
