Hello Ruben,

Actually, my education had a lot of biology wrapped in. My major in
college was geology, but I also took a lot of biology courses as
electives. I also took a minor in archaeology, which included a human
forensics course. My graduate degree in vert. paleo included courses in
comparative vertebrate osteology and invertebrate paleo. How to work
with potential soft tissue and avoiding chemical contamination for
things that need to be SEM scanned, DNA tested, etc. are largely things
I picked up as a preparator.
You're right that there's a much greater involvement of biology in
paleontology compared to the way the science was in the past. That said,
paleontology is still very much a geological science. Anyone wanting to
do field work, taphonomy, paleoenvironmental analysis, etc. needs to
understand how to read the rocks too. Knowledge of sediments is
certainly essential for a preparator! I may be a bit biased, but I feel
that it's better for someone interested in paleo to seek an educational
background in geology, and pick up the biology aspect on the side. The
trouble is that most schools shape their academic programs through
available funding for research. Field work and lab work are expensive,
so many schools do not have active field programs or maintain research
collections, choosing instead to run hypothetical simulations and crunch
data in lab and student research activities. While there have been
declines in schools offering traditional geology and biology majors,
there are now more schools offering studies in paleontology and museum
studies, both of which allow students to have more options if they're
able to go to those schools.

Thanks again,
Michelle

How hard was it to adapt from a geology background to Paleontology which
is largely a biology field. Once you get into the find bone areas, you
must have some idea on basic anatomy to avoid damaging those fine
structure. And I would think that increasinlgy one has to be aware of
the possibility of fossilized soft tissue.
