Areas of detailed knowledge will include vertebrate and invertebrate paleobiology, paleobotany, evolutionary biology, systematics, functional morphology, sedimentology, stratigraphy, and plate tectonics. Paleontologists usually hold advanced research degrees and work as research scientists and teachers in universities, museums, and industrial laboratories.
