While it cannot be denied that gene action during development can set the stage for how adult animals age, we shall define aging (and senescing) as the constellation of changes in structure and function that occur post-maturationally and that are associated with an exponential increase in mortality among large populations of organisms. The ages of onset and the slopes of the exponential increases in mortality are constitutional features of speciation, indicative of major contributions of the genotype in modulating rates of aging.

Of interest were a number of mutations responsible for "segmental progeroid syndromes," the best example of which is the Werner syndrome (see below). No single mutation could be identified, however, that appeared to modulate the times of onset or the rates of development of all aspects of aging. 45 2. Stochastic Mechanisms of Aging In species with single massive episodes of reproduction (semelparous or "big bang" reproduction) (Diamond 1982), the onset of aging in large populations of organisms appears to be relatively synchronized and is rapidly progressive, suggesting a "programmed" mechanism of aging.
