Combining both paleontology and paleobiology, this text is targeted at undergraduate geology and biology majors, with the emphasis on organisms, rather than dead objects to be described and catalogued. Current ideas from modern biology, ecology, population genetics, and many other concepts are applied to the study of the fossil record.
