What is Biodemography?

Biodemography is the interdisciplinary approach to demography in which biological considerations (such as genetic, epidemiological, and evolutionary determinants) are emphasized. It is the study of the influence of biological factors on demographic patterns (such as those relating to fertility, health, aging, and longevity) of human populations or populations of other sexually reproducing species.
