paleontology (pā´lēəntŏl´əjē) [Gr.,= study of early beings], science of the life of past geologic periods based on fossil remains. Knowledge of the existence of fossils dates back at least to the ancient Greeks, who appear to have regarded them as the remains of various mythological creatures. Because few fossils are found in rock older than the late Precambrian, paleontology is. the basic methods of paleontology The basic techniques that prepare us for the scientific study of fossils are simple and can be mastered by young students. By becoming involved in the discovery, preparation, curation, and interpretation of fossils, students can understand the process of science and even contribute new knowledge.

  My first paleontology class was like that and I loved every minute of it. I used an earlier edition of Clarkson’s book (the upper right book in the photo) back then. Such a class is very helpful for students who might need to work out which species lived where and when. 2) Methods and Principles.

The abstract must describe completed work in detail (e.g. scope, purpose, methods, results). If you are describing work that is completed, write in the past tense.

If you are describing principles and procedures in general (e.g. Conservation of Waterlogged Wood or Proper Use of Consolidants, etc.) then present tense is appropriate. Paleontology Book Summary: Paleontology methods lay the foundation and provide a systematic and scientific platform for our research.

Then urban paleontology, as a new framework for urban form study, unfolds itself more and more apparently in front of us. It explores the evolution of "urban species" based on their remains- "urban fossils. Paleontology involves outdoor and indoor activities. Finding, removing, and packaging fossils for transport are the major component of fieldwork done by paleontologists.

The field work, however begins with preparatory work in the office or laboratory. Paleontology investigates living creatures and living worlds of past geological eras using fossils, which are the remains of living creatures found in sedimentary rocks.

The topics of our books and journals range from the determination of the age of rock layers, evolutionary and biodiversity research, the biology of extinct groups of organisms.

Paleobiologists bring many analytical tools to bear in interpreting the fossil record and the book introduces the latest techniques, from multivariate investigations of biogeography and biostratigraphy to engineering analysis of dinosaur skulls, and from homeobox genes to cladistics.
