We develop a modelling framework for how prolonged dormancy may affect senescence in perennial plants. Using this framework for long-term demographic data from two perennial herbs, the present study shows mixed evidence for senescence in perennial plants. Our results indicate that prolonged dormancy interacts with the age-dependence of vital rates and may sometimes retard the process of senescence.
