Palaeobiology

palaeobiology small

 

Palaeobiology adds a temporal dimension to biology, taking into consideration the organisms that existed in the geological past and investigating how they relate to extant life in terms of phylogenetics, development, adaptation, and ecology. Palaeobiologists in the Department of Zoology, University of Cambridge focus on a wide range of topics, such as reconstruction of environments and climates during the Quaternary, the evolution and radiation of tetrapods, their stem group and their descendants during the late Palaeozoic, and the origin, development, and systematics of mammals.
