Paleontology is the science dealing with the fossils of long-deceased animals and plants that lived up to billions of years ago.

  • It's an interdisciplinary field involving geology, archaeology, chemistry, biology, archaeology and anthropology.
  • A paleontologist studies the history and process of evolution by examining fossils, the preserved traces of long dead animals and plants.
  • Using data from fossilized bones they tell us about the history of the earth, the evolution of life, and our own place in the world.
