The answer may lie in the offspring's length of telomeres, or protective caps at the ends of chromosomes. By studying the long-lived seabird, the European shag, researchers examined the relationship between the age of the parents and the telomere length of their offspring. Chicks produced by older parents had greater telomere loss during nestling growth than chicks produced by younger parents. Results are consistent with the hypothesis that parental age influences offspring longevity, partly due to telomere loss post-natally.
