Phenotypic senescence and multilevel variation in different body sizes in a natural insect population

Kata Pásztor, Ádám Kőrösi, Ádám Gór & János Kis
Senescence seems to be universal in living organisms and plays a major role in life-history strategies. Phenotypic senescence, decline of body condition and/or performance with age, is a largely understudied component of senescence in natural insect populations, although it would be important to understand how and why insects age under natural conditions. We aimed a) to investigate how body mass and thorax width change with age in a natural population of the univoltine Clouded Apollo...

Perry
Human culture, biology, and health were shaped dramatically by the onset of agriculture ~12,000 years before present (BP). This shift is hypothesized to have resulted in increased individual fitness and population growth as evidenced by archaeological and population genomic data alongside a decline in physiological health as inferred from skeletal remains. Here, we consider osteological and ancient DNA data from the same prehistoric individuals to study human stature variation as a proxy for health across...
