Synopses & Reviews

Book News Annotation:

Drawing on biomedical research and the natural history of animals and plants, two biologists describe the phenomenon of aging for general readers. They explore such issues as how aging can be such an integral part of life, why some species live longer than others closely related to them, and why some show signs of aging before they die while others just keel over one day. Nicely illustrated in color.
