THE TRUTH ABOUT PREVALENT

maxresdefault-9

Prevalent: adj. being endemic for a relatively short duration

Prevalent should really be a subset of endemic where the relatively short duration is what determines its usage. It is therefore accurate to say that beer drinking is prevalent in Nascar races, drug usage is prevalent in many metal rock concerts, profanity is prevalent in many comedy clubs, many northern birds are prevalent in the south during the winter, and littering is prevalent in many outdoor public gatherings but it would be an inaccurate usage if you were to say that kangaroos are prevalent in Australia. It is more accurate to say that kangaroos are endemic in Australia.

Endemic: n. a subset(s) existing and frequently being common in a set

Endemic is frequently used to describe a species common yet limited to a given area or territory and to describe a disease either limited to or common to a human population or an area. Sickle cell anemia is endemic to certain African tribes and the alligator is endemic to the southeastern United States. Violence is endemic to some motorcycle gangs and praying is endemic to many religions. Electric motors are endemic to many moving appliances. 

Any subset can be said to be endemic to a set that it belongs to or is a part of.
