The work presents experimental confirmation of the author's thermodynamic theory of the biological evolution and aging of living beings. It shows that using the law of temporal hierarchies and the second law of thermodynamics, it is easy to describe biological evolution (phylogeny) and ontogeny in terms of equilibrium hierarchical thermodynamics. This theory explains many known facts and makes it possible to formulate new practical recommendations in the sphere of medical and biological disciplines, for instance, dietology, gerontology, and geriatrics. Using the models of temporal hierarchies when studying living nature, researchers can go a long way towards understanding it. View Full-Text
