Figure 1

Graphical displays of the metrics of survival and actuarial senescence analyzed in this study.

Data from female lions (Panthera leo) in zoo (in brown) and free-ranging (in green) conditions are used for illustrative purposes. Female lions in the zoo population live longer (age in years) and have a lower baseline annual mortality (in log%), a later onset of senescence (in years) and a lower rate of actuarial senescence (measured as the exponential rate of mortality increase per year).
