Fossils are the mineralized or preserved remains or traces of animals, plants, and other organisms.
Fossils, both discovered and undiscovered, and their placement in fossil-containing rock formations and sedimentary layers (known as strata) is known as the fossil record.
The study of fossils across geological time, how they were formed, and the evolutionary relationships are some of the most important functions of the
science of paleontology.
Fossils can help prove many theories and can tell us about the history of earth.
Fossils can vary in size and shape.
Scientists can determine the age of fossils by using radioactive dating or by examining the strata and using relative dating.
