Abstract: Genetic studies using model organisms have shown that many long-lived mutants display impaired fitness, such as reduced fecundity and delayed development. However, in several wild animals, the association between longevity and fitness does not seem to be inevitable. Thus, the relationship between longevity and fitness in wild organisms remains inconclusive. Here, we determined the correlation between lifespan and fitness, developmental rate and brood size, by using 16 wild-derived C. elegans strains originated… Show more
