Comparative and Meta-Analytic Insights into
Life Extension via Dietary Restriction
This project is an example how a meta-analysis can be enhanced
using bibliometric information and visualisations (i.e. research weaving).
It is an extension of our published meta-analysis (Nakagawa et al. 2014)
quantitatively examining whether dietary restriction
extends the lifespan of a wide range of species.
