Insects' survival, mating decrease with age in wild, researchers discover

... vital functions, not chronological time. The two zoologists examined the flies to see if their abilities to survive to the next day and to mate deteriorated with age. The study appears in the Nov. 28 issue of Nature. "We found that the flies deteriorate over their lives. As they get chronologically older, the...
