ABSTRACT
Univ. of Gothenburg researchers found that geese that had fewer offspring later in life lived longer. And there was a big difference in telomeres, protective caps at the end of chromosomes that scientists use to estimate life expectancy for animals and humans. The result confirms observations that animals that have fewer offspring, such as elephants, live longer than more prolific species such as mice. One possible explanation is that species with few offspring focus more on personal health than reproduction.
