  Senescence Theory
For annual plants, yearly senescence can be explained as a way of increasing the number of progeny surviving to reproductive age and/or a way of increasing the amount of turnover and thus the rate of evolution.

Senescence is studied in gerontology which is the branch of science involved with the aging process.
Recently, early senescence has been alleged to be a possible unintended outcome of early cloning experiments, Most notably, the issue was raised in the case of Dolly the sheep, following her death from a contagious lung disease.

The "yellowing" of leaves is often referred to in the plant literature as leaf senescence or the "senescence syndrome" -- referring to the process by which nutrients are mobilized from the dying leaf to other parts of the plant to support their growth.

 Telomeres and Telomerase: The Cellular Timekeepers
Indeed, defects in telomere replication have been shown to trigger senescence in yeast (Lundblad and Szostak, 1989) and in the protozoan Tetrahymena (Yu et al., 1990).
Similarly, it was noticed in yeast that certain telomerase-negative strains would senesce with longer telomeres than immortal telomerase-positive strains (Prescott and Blackburn, 1997; Roy et al., 1998).
Lastly, although telomerase may prevent the accelerated clonal senescence of Werner's syndrome cells (Wyllie et al., 2000), it does not appear to fully reverse the WS phenotype (Choi et al., 2001).
