In this pursuit, the book presents a new quantitativemethodto examine the relative contributions of genetic andenvironmental factors to mortality anddisease incidence in apopulation.
With input from evolutionary biology, population genetics,demography, and epidemiology, this medically motivated bookdescribes an index of aging-relatedness and also features:
