Max Planck Institute for Demographic Research Working Paper: “Senescence vs. sustenance: evolutionary-demographic models of aging,” by Annette Baudisch and James W. Vaupel (WP-2009-040, December 2009, .pdf format, 11p.).

Abstract:

Humans, and many other species, suffer senescence: mortality increases and fertility declines with adult age. Some species, however, enjoy sustenance: mortality and fertility remain constant. Here we develop simple but general evolutionary-demographic models to explain the conditions that favor senescence vs. sustenance. The models illustrate how mathematical demography can deepen understanding of the evolution of aging.
