Caribbean Journal of Science. Through the lens of geologic time — wherein millions of years are thrown around because the numbers are too big to truly comprehend — extending the lifetime of a ground sloth another 2, years might not sound like much. But for another 5, years, ground sloths survived. Steadman, D. Read Caption. Sometimes, when hours of rolling over the interstate starts to addle my brain, I start to imagine them out among the Joshua trees — reminders that we still live in the shadow of the Ice Age world. The largest of all was Megalocnus. Consider the times when the giant ground sloths disappeared. They very last of their kind, both protected and made vulnerable by life on islands, were still shuffling 4, years ago. Assuming that humans, climate change, or any of the other traditional suspects without more detailed evidence masks the complexity of how extinction happens. But MacPhee and colleagues underscore the importance of getting good dates for when Ice Age creatures vanished. Asynchronous extinction of late Quaternary sloths on continents and islands. In time, we may get a clearer picture of why such a diverse and widespread ground of mammals disappeared. From a tooth found on the island, the researchers estimated that the ground sloth survived to at least 4, years ago. Photo by Brian Switek. Quaternary International. And in these fading families, should the explanation for extinction be the cause of death of the last individual , or do we assemble a more complex picture that considers factors that made the population vulnerable in the first place? Continue Reading.{/INSERTKEYS}{/PARAGRAPH} Based on remains found in a limestone cave on Cuba, Steadman and colleagues determined that Megalocnus lived until at least 6, years ago. Both science and storytelling influence our answers to these questions, but one thing is abundantly clear. Should a species be considered extinct when its very last member perishes, or when the population sinks below a level from which they can recover? {PARAGRAPH}{INSERTKEYS}All rights reserved. Of course, last appearance dates are often revised with new finds and updated techniques. Megalonyx and other giants from North America were some of the first to go. I had not even heard about these sloths until paleo geneticist Ross Barnett told me about them in a Twitter exchange long ago, and, as reviewed in the paper by Steadman and colleagues, there were at least five genera and thirteen species of large ground sloths that were unique to these islands. Parocnus , also found on Cuba, lived until about 4, years ago, and the small ground sloth Neocnus trundled over Hispaniola until about 4, years ago. Other smaller sloths persisted even longer. Extinction is a process, not a single fell swoop. Photo by Ghedoghedo. When did the last of the ground sloths disappear? Calling the time of death for any species or lineage is always complicated by definitions and details. Martin, F. MacPhee, R. Especially because there are habitats — such as vast stretches of desert in the basin and range I call home — that could still host them.
