Guest Speaker: Dr. Lisa White, Paleontologist

Paleontology

 

What careers study evolution?

Evolution is a controversial topic because it is not hard solid fact. There is a lot of evidence that makes the theories of evolution valid but a conclusion or a law has not been yet made, and maybe it still won’t. The evidence that validates the theory of evolution is usually found by paleontologists, geologists, and anthropologists. They all study things that can help prove the evolution to be fact.

·A paleontologist studies prehistoriclife, including organisms' evolution and interactions with each other and their environments

·A geologist studies the solid Earth and the processes by which it evolves. Geology provides primary evidence for plate tectonics, the history of life and evolution, and past climates.

·An anthropologist studies humanity, including their culture, interaction, heritage, and much more. They study both current situations and ancient situations and try to analyze why certain things happened the way they did.
