By A. H. Bittles, K. J. Collins

The techniques that keep an eye on senescence were the topic of extra then a century of great organic study. associations heavily serious about this programme, the Society for the research of Human Biology and the British Society for learn in getting old, held a joint symposium in 1984 to think about human growing old and durability from an interdisciplinary standpoint. The ensuing booklet has 4 major sections: the evolution and genetics of getting older, organic age evaluate, demographic and social elements, and the dietary and physiological facets of ageing and durability. the basic nature of the topic will generate curiosity throughout quite a lot of organic and clinical disciplines.
