Demography of Late Life with Lifelong Heterogeneity
Within-cohort selection can theoretically lead to the deceleration of mortality rates when there is substantial lifelong heterogeneity in robustness. This effect arises in both non-aging and aging organisms. If there is implausibly extreme lifelong heterogeneity in robustness, late life can arise from the relictual survival of the extremely robust.
