The Gerontology Wiki is intended to be a specialist encyclopedia covering the interdisciplinary topic of gerontology, which is the study of old age, aging, and human longevity.

While the current focus of this Wikia is on the demographic records of human longevity, this is just the statistical floor upon which applied research into the genetic and environmental effects combine to modulate the maxim human lifespan may be built upon. In order for us, as humanity, to know whether humans alive today are living longer than humans in the past, we must first establish the demographic boundaries of the human cohorts over time, as established by documented systems of recordkeeping. Thus, the Gerontology Wiki is also starting with the records of human longevity.
