Hello, fellas. Today we’re going to talk about a word. The word is “senescence”. Do you know what it means, fellas? #WOTD
Senescence means the process of becoming old; the growth phase in a plant or plant part (as a leaf) from full maturity to death.
The word senescence is commonly used in Biology.
As the baby flies, it gradually ages, letting out a primal howl at each stage: adolescence, manhood, middle-age, senescence.
– TIMES, SUNDAY TIMES (2002)
Variety, age, plant hormones and environmental conditions – light, temperature, water, air quality, all influence senescence.
– New Scientist (2004)
That’s all I can share for the quick session today, fellas. :)
