Paleontology

Paleontology from Greek: "old, ancient", "being, creature", "speech, thought" is the study of prehistoric life. It includes the study of fossils to determine organisms' evolution and interactions with each other and their environments (their paleoecology). As a "historical science" it attempts to explain causes rather than conduct experiments to observe effects.
