    • Diversity of ageing across the tree of life. 

      Jones, OR; Scheuerlein, A; Salguero-Gómez, R; Camarda, CG; Schaible, R; Casper, BB; Dahlgren, JP; ... (14 authors) (Nature, 2014-01-09)
      Evolution drives, and is driven by, demography. A genotype moulds its phenotype's age patterns of mortality and fertility in an environment; these two patterns in turn determine the genotype's fitness in that environment. ...
    • Evolution. Getting to the root of aging. 

      Baudisch, A; Vaupel, James Walton (Science, 2012-11-02)
    • Human mortality improvement in evolutionary context. 

      Burger, O; Baudisch, A; Vaupel, James Walton (Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A, 2012-10-30)
      Life expectancy is increasing in most countries and has exceeded 80 in several, as low-mortality nations continue to make progress in averting deaths. The health and economic implications of mortality reduction have been ...
    • Mutation accumulation may be a minor force in shaping life history traits. 

      Dańko, MJ; Kozłowski, J; Vaupel, James Walton; Baudisch, A (PLoS One, 2012)
      Is senescence the adaptive result of tradeoffs between younger and older ages or the nonadaptive burden of deleterious mutations that act at older ages? To shed new light on this unresolved question we combine adaptive and ...
    • Senescence vs. sustenance: Evolutionary-demographic models of aging 

      Baudisch, A; Vaupel, James Walton (Demographic Research, 2010-11-10)
      Humans, and many other species, suffer senescence: mortality increases and fertility decreases with adult age. Some species, however, enjoy sustenance: mortality and fertility remain constant. Here we develop simple but ...
    • The compadre Plant Matrix Database: An open online repository for plant demography 

      Altwegg, R; Archer, CR; Baudisch, A; Brinks, E; Buckley, YM; Caswell, H; Che-Castaldo, J; ... (38 authors) (Journal of Ecology, 2015-01-01)
      © 2014 The Authors. Journal of Ecology published by John Wiley & Sons Ltd on behalf of British Ecological Society.Summary: Schedules of survival, growth and reproduction are key life-history traits. Data on how these traits ...
    • The emergence of longevous populations. 

      Alberts, S; Altmann, Jeanne; Barthold, JA; Baudisch, A; Brockman, DK; Bronikowski, AM; Colchero, Fernando; ... (21 authors) (Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A, 2016-11-29)
      The human lifespan has traversed a long evolutionary and historical path, from short-lived primate ancestors to contemporary Japan, Sweden, and other longevity frontrunners. Analyzing this trajectory is crucial for understanding ...
