Definition Of:

PALEONTOLOGY

Environmental Engineering Dictionary
The study of fossils of animal and plant life that existed in remote geological times. The study of these remains enables scientists to trace the evolutionary history of extinct as well as contemporary organisms. Paleontologists also play a major role in unraveling the stratigraphic mysteries of the earth's crust and by using detailed information on how fossils are distributed in sedimentary strata, they help prepare accurate geologic maps, which are essential in the search for oil, water, and minerals.
