Parapenaeus fissuroides Crosnier, 1985 in Kagoshima Bay. The growth performance index ( Ø ′ ) was higher for females (3.04) than males (2.83), indicating that females grew faster than males of the same age. The longevity was estimated to be around 2 years for males and 2.5 years for females based

Longevity refers to the length of the life span of humans, animals and plants.  Although with regard to humans there are neither biological nor demographic criteria for the time when an individual has reached an exceptional point of old age, in demographic research such persons are generally

assess the relationships of longevity and age at sexual maturity with sexual size dimorphism (SSD) and growth rates. Material and methods A total of 93 Podarcis muralis individuals (43 ♂♂ and 50 ♀♀) were caught in the present study. Lizards were collected from two populations: 53 individuals (21 ♂♂ and

In our study, we find a positive significant correlation between body size (SVL) and age for both sexes, in all the three

("ecological longevity") meets with several difficulties. Using as an example a long-term data series of a tidal-flat population of the edible cockle, Cerastoderma (Cardium) edule, it is shown that the age of the oldest individual found depends on the sampling effort (both sizc of area sampled and duration of
