Melanie Morales, Marta Oñate, María B. García and Sergi Munné-Bosch Photo-oxidative stress markers reveal absence of physiological deterioration with ageing in Borderea pyrenaica, an extraordinarily long-lived herb Journal of Ecology 101
Neither males nor females of the extraordinarily long-lived Borderea pyrenaica show age-dependent signs of oxidative stress. This observation suggests that age-induced oxidative stress is not a universal feature of ageing in perennial plants. Indeed, females older than 100 years showed signs of negative senescence, in that they registered improved physiological performance with increasing age.
