Long-lived bats could hold secrets to mammal longevity: Biologists found four bat lineages that live at least four times longer than similar-sized mammals and revealed new traits associated with bat longevity

Long-lived bats could hold secrets to mammal longevity: Biologists found four bat lineages that live at least four times longer than similar-sized mammals and revealed new traits associated with bat longevity

Researchers analyzed an evolutionary tree reconstructed from the DNA of a majority of known bat species and found four bat lineages that exhibit extreme longevity. They also identified, for the first time, two life history features that predict extended life spans in bats.
