Variability in Life Span Functional Capacity
Aging is a process in which both risk and phenotypic variability have important roles and significant interactions. Other contributions to this volume include examples of age as a determinant of responses to environmental challenges and examples in which variations in longevity are the ultimate consequence of phenotypic variability.
