How far does exposure to radiation mimic ageing in insects?- I. Life table data from the blowfly, Calliphora erythrocephala



How far does exposure to radiation mimic ageing in insects?- I. Life table data from the blowfly, Calliphora erythrocephala



Experimental Gerontology 14(5): 247-254



Life-table data were obtained from populations of adults of Calliphora vicina R.-D. (erythrocephala (Mg.)) following various exposures to gamma -irradiation, in an attempt to discriminate between 'precocious ageing' (Baxter & Blair, 1967), 'accelerated ageing' (Lamb & Maynard Smith, 1969) and a 'specific radiation syndrome' (Atlan et al., 1969). The results did not support a 'precocious' theory of ageing and failed to distinguish clearly between the other two interpretations; the reasons are discussed.
