Palaeontology [online] is a website covering all aspects of palaeontology and associated disciplines at a level understandable to secondary/high-school students and interested adults.

The site is updated twice a month, with short- to medium-length (1,–3, word) articles. Paleontology is the study of past life based on fossil and fossilization record. The fossils are the petrified remains or impressions or imprints of the hard parts of the ancient organisms.

They are preserved in the sedimentary rocks (gradual deposition of soil particles in layer after layer) or other media like volcanic ash, ice, sand, mud, etc. to study about evidences from Paleontology. The story of how the neodarwinian, or synthetic theory of evolution arose, including the role played by Julian Huxley’s book The Syn-thetic Theory of Evolution, has been told many er, practically every evolutionary biologist of the past two or three decades has at some stage offered a succinct statement of the synthetic theory reduced to its elemental minimum.

The history of paleontology traces the history of the effort to understand the history of life on Earth by studying the fossil record left behind by living organisms. Since it is concerned with understanding living organisms of the past, paleontology can be considered to be a field of biology, but its historical development has been closely tied to geology and the effort to understand the.Palaeontology genre: new releases and popular books, including The Rise and Fall of the Dinosaurs: A New History of a Lost World by Stephen Brusatte, You.Article" Patterns In Palaeontology: Digitally Peering Inside Fossil Skulls" by Charlotte M.
