Paleontology is the field of science that focuses on determining the evolution of organisms and their interaction with their surroundings, through studying fossils. A palaeontologist studies the history and mechanism of evolution by looking at fossils, the preserved remains of long-extinct animals and plants. Using evidence from fossilised bones, ancient pollen, and other clues, palaeontologists dig into the knowledge of past climates and past extinctions.
