Meaning of Senescence
Senescence (/sɪˈnɛsəns/) (from Latin: senescere, meaning "to grow old", from senex) or biological aging (also spelled biological ageing) is the gradual deterioration of function characteristic of most complex lifeforms, arguably found in all biological kingdoms, that on the level of the organism increases mortality after maturation. The word "senescence" can refer either to cellular senescence or to senescence of the whole organism. It is commonly believed that cellular senescence underlies organismal senescence. The science of biological aging is biogerontology. - See link

 

Senescence in Spanish is Senescencia
La senescencia se refiere a los cambios relacionales entre los elementos del sistema por el paso del tiempo (de una forma tiempo-dependiente) en relación con los sistemas materiales que presentan una cierta estructura u organización. Tales cambios (si no se deben a intervención: véase al final de este artículo "Programas de envejecimiento genético" o fallas drásticas en la dinámica normal) suelen ser irreversibles, de modo que es posible inferir el tiempo transcurrido a partir de la secuencia preestablecida para dichos cambios. En esta primera definición no se incluye ninguna referencia a la naturaleza del sistema material ni al hecho de que los cambios supongan un deterioro, aunque éste último suele ser el caso debido a que las leyes de la termodinámica conducen inexorablemente a un aumento de la entropía. - See link
