Background: 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 patterns of senescence across a range of physiological, morphological, biomolecular and reproductive traits. By gaining a deeper understanding of senescence across traits within the same individuals, we will be able to provide insights on the mosaic nature of senescence.
