Cambridge Studies in Biological and Evolutionary Anthropolog #36: Human Senescence: Evolutionary and Biocultural Perspectives

by

Cambridge Studies in Biological and Evolutionary Anthropolog #36: Human Senescence: Evolutionary and Biocultural Perspectives Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Combining anthropological, gerontological and biocultural evidence, this study explores how humans came to grow old as slowly as they do, and what impacts this has had on their health and lives. It is only comparatively recent that humans have developed late-life survival, but much of the research on senescence is based on isolated cells, worms, and fruit flies, which may be only of peripheral relevance to human aging.

Synopsis:

This 2003 text explores why humans, unlike other animals, came to grow old slowly.
