Thomas Flatt, a professor of Evolutionary Biology at the University of Freiburg told, “This is what happens to most organisms. Evolution by natural selection is very much about how many viable offspring you can produce.”

Concurrently, some trees such as the Great Basin bristlecone pine can live for thousands of years. One of these pines, named Methuselah is almost 5,000 years old.
