Vertebrate paleontology is a large subfield to paleontology seeking to discover the behavior, reproduction and appearance of extinct animals with vertebrae or a notochord, through the study of their fossilized remains. It also tries to connect, by using the evolutionary timeline, the animals of the past and their modern-day relatives. Whereas paleobotany, the branch of paleontology, deals with the recovery and identification of plant remains from geological contexts, and their use for the biological reconstruction of past environments. The book deals with topics of broad interest to the entire vertebrate paleontology community and to high-impact specialist studies.
