Long-lived trees immortality questioned – New publication in TIPS
Sergi Munné-Bosch has recently contributed to the immortal debate of eternal living. This month, the forum article “Long-Lived Trees Are Not Immortal” by Sergi Munné-Bosch has been published in Trends in Plant Science. This article is a response to the article published this January by Li Wang et al. in PNAS and points out that although long-lived trees may have long lives, they are also subjected to physiological limits that constrain their immortality, and in the end they all will die.
The article has been highly supported by the media worldwide besides the University of Barcelona News and has been included in different prestigious newspapers such as The New York Times in USA, Daily Mail and Telegraph in UK and La Vanguardia in Spain.
