  Paleobiology - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Paleobiology (sometimes spelled palaeobiology) is a growing and comparatively new discipline which combines the methods and findings of the natural science biology with the methods and findings of the earth science paleontology.
using the methods and principles of paleobiology to understand fauna, both vertebrates and invertebrates.
The founder or "father" of modern paleobiology is commonly agreed to be Baron Franz Nopcsa (1877 to 1933), a turn-of-the-century Balkan scientist.

 JSTOR: Paleobiology
Paleobiology, founded to provide a forum for the greater integration of paleontology and biology, began publication in 1975.
Paleobiology publishes original articles that emphasize biological or paleobiological processes and patterns including: speciation, extinction, development of individuals and colonies, natural selection, evolution, and patterns of variation, abundance and distribution of organisms in space and time.
In 1999 Paleobiology began publication of an occasional series, Paleobiology Memoirs, which provides an outlet for longer works on the same topics covered in regular research articles.

Paleobiology is the study of fossils as once living organisms, rather than simply as prehistoric death assemblages.
Paleobiology includes several branches, of which two major ones are paleozoology and paleobotany, the former being the study of fossil animals, and the latter the science of ancient plants.
In short, except for excluding the study of humans, the Department of Paleobiology is a microcosm of all the other departments of the Museum.

 GEOLOGY 307 - PALEOBIOLOGY OF DINOSAURS
It is now hypothesized by many paleontologists that some dinosaurs may have been warm-blooded (endothermic, like mammals and birds) and several paleontologists argue that the dinosaurs are not really extinct, they theorize that the birds are the living remnants of the dinosaurs.
Geology 307, Paleobiology of Dinosaurs, is an upper level college course designed as an elective course for those interested in exploring the fascinating world of dinosaur paleontology.
This course will explore the evolution, history, and paleobiology of the dinosaurs; from their appearance in the geologic record about 228 million years ago to their extinction about 65 million years ago.

The mission of the Department of Paleobiology is discovery, description, and interpretation of the past history of life on earth and its context within the surrounding environment.
Research programs in paleontology encompass the systematics of specific animal and plant groups and their associations, the evolutionary processes underlying phylogenetic patterns, paleoecology, the responses of ecosystems to abiotic and biotic change, and the relationships of ecological patterns to evolving lineages.

Paleobiology publishes original contributions of any length (but normally 10-50 manuscript pages) dealing with any aspect of biological paleontology.
Submission of a manuscript to Paleobiology implies that it is not simultaneously being considered for publication by another journal.
Paleobiology also welcomes submissions for Matters of the Record, which features up-to-date discussions of new discoveries, reviews of recent conceptual advances, and brief syntheses of important topics.

 Amazon.com: Deep Time : Paleobiology's Perspective: Books: Scott L. Wing,Douglas H. Erwin   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-01)
The fifteen chapters of Deep Time, authored by leading researchers in paleobiology, present an overview of current work and an outline of important unsolved problems in the field, revealing exciting interactions between the study of fossils and recent findings in biogeochemistry, genetics, developmental and functional biology, ecology, evolution, systematics, and sedimentary geology.
Within the diversity of this research lie the unifying themes that are central to the discipline--the idea that the histories and past behaviors of living systems are key to understanding their workings, and that "deep time" is a perspective paleobiology alone brings to the study of living things.
Collectively, these pieces are a impressive demonstration of the accelerating strength of paleobiology as a science, and function as an invaluable overview of a field that documents not only the history of biological systems, but also uses that history to reveal the processes that allow living systems to respond to change.

 Ancient birds flew on all-fours
The earliest known ancestor of modern-day birds took to the skies by gliding from trees using primitive feathered wings on their arms and legs, according to new research by a University of Calgary paleontologist.
In a paper published in the journal Paleobiology, Department of Biological Sciences PhD student Nick Longrich challenges the idea that birds began flying by taking off from the ground while running and shows that the dinosaur-like bird Archaeopteryx soared using wing-like feathers on all of its limbs.
Nick Longrich's paper, "Structure and function of hindlimb feathers in Archaeopteryx lithographica" appears in the September, 2006 issue of the journal Paleobiology.

 The Paleobiology Laboratory at IUPUI
My research has focused on four different aspects of the paleobiology of bryozoans: 1, paleogenetics; 2, patterns of colony development under different paleoenvironmental conditions; 3, diversity, origination, and extinction patterns; and 4, pattern, tempo, and mode of bryozoan evolution.
Paleogenetics studies have focused on determining evolutionary potentials of Paleozoic (570-230 million years ago) bryozoans under different inferred environmental conditions.
