Paleontology is the field of scientific inquiry that focuses on prehistoric life. It examines the interaction of extinct organisms with each other and with their physical environment.

Because paleontologists investigate forms of life that are no longer alive, they rely primarily on available fossil evidence to explain those interactions.

Paleontology is a relatively young science.
