Basal metabolic rate and the rate of senescence in the great tit

Abstract:

1. Between-individual variation in rates of senescence has recently been found to relate to natal and early-life conditions in several natural populations. Mechanistic theories of senescence have predicted between-individual variation in basal metabolic rate (BMR) to also underlie such variation in rates of senescence. The question whether variation in BMR is linked to natal and early-life conditions with effects on senescence has, however, not yet been addressed. 2. Using cross-sectional dat...
