Omtale Evolutionary Biology of Aging
In this provocative book on the process of growing old, Michael Rose goes right to the heart of the fundamental "unsolved problem" of biology. Why do we grow old? The proposed theory is that to understand aging we must understand its evolution; only then do its taxonomic distribution and its genetic and physiological mechanisms become intelligible. Evidence is produced from the fields of cell biology, physiology, and gerontology.
