Environmental effects on senescence in the European badger (Meles meles)

Despite a recent surge in research in ageing biology, the drivers and mechanisms that underlie ageing in natural populations are still poorly understood. I will use longitudinal data from a European badger population in order to study and compare the effects of early-life environment on adult senescence using a range of climatic indices together with physiological, morphological, and reproductive traits. By gaining a deeper understanding of senescence within the same individuals, we will be able to provide insights on the mosaic nature of senescence.
