Caribbean Islands Reveal a “Lost Word” of Ancient Mammals

Tech News Keywords:

Although filled with tropical life today, the Caribbean islands have been a hotspot of mammal extinction since the end of the last glaciation, some 12,000 years ago. Since people also arrived after that time, it has been impossible to determine whether natural changes or human influence are most responsible for these extinctions. The “lost world” of Caribbean animals included ground sloths, enigmatic monkeys, giant rodents, a vampire bat, and shew-like insectivores before the arrival of humans. (Illustration by D. Rini.)

For decades, statistical agencies such as the United Nations, the U.S. Census Bureau and Eurostat have provided data and analyses of population aging, assuming that the only characteristic that was relevant to the study of population aging was chronological age. But this is not the case. Sixty-five-year-olds today have longer remaining life expectancies and score higher on tests of cognitive functioning than 65-year-olds in the past. Data on population aging that ignore the changing characteristics of people produce a distorted picture of the extent of population aging in the future.
