    Paleontologists use fossils to study life throughout time and to learn more about Earth’s past environments; human fossils often consist of teeth, skull, and other bones. With the help of complex techniques that date ancient remains, paleontologists learn about the evolving diversity and origins of a species. Paleontology allows us to retrace life on Earth and to determine what forces created such changes. The examination of these recurring patterns may help paleontologists to predict the…
