Description
PALEOBIOLOGY
Paleobiology is the study of fossilized animals most of which are now extinct, and their relationships to one another and to their environment. It encompasses the identification (who is it?), taxonomic relationships (who is it related to?), evolutionary history (is it extinct or extant?), ecological relationships (who did it eat? Who was it eaten by?), geologic distribution (when did it live?), behavior (did it live in burrows?), and taphonomy (how did it get fossilized?) of these organisms. GE Life or Physical Science
