Paleontology is the science that studies fossils. Paleontologists examine how life has evolved in the course of geological time. Both the fossil species itself, any trace fossils and the environment in which they lived is investigated.

Subsciences of paleontology include the paleobotany that studies fossil plants, micropaleontology studying microfossils, and biostratigraphy that uses fossils to investigate the stratigraphy.
