A team of researchers from Aarhus University in Denmark has estimated possible spread of mammal diversity in the world if the modern humans did not exist on the planet.
They study showed that most of northern Europe would house wolves, Eurasian elk and bears as well as animals such as elephants and rhinoceroses. The estimates are based on distribution of each species according to its ecology, biogeography and the current natural environmental template.
Jens-Christian Svenning, from the Department of Bioscience, Aarhus University in Denmark, said, humans have caused mammal diversity to be lower across the world and not just in Northern Europe. He also said that there is a very large deficit in mammal diversity compared to the natural factors. They also found that Africa would be a continent with high diversity of large mammals. They also found distribution of large-mammal diversity across the world including North and South America
Lead author Soren Faurby said, "Most safaris today take place in Africa, but under natural circumstances, as many or even more large animals would no doubt have existed in other places, notably places such as Texas and the region around northern ArgentinaSouthern Brazil."
