ROM Fossils & Evolution

By discovering, preserving and studying fossils from around the world, ROM palaeontologists learn how life evolved over time. The more we learn about this deep evolutionary heritage, the more we can appreciate how humans form part of the Earth’s complex fabric of life. ROM research also enables us to reconstruct past ecosystems and large-scale patterns of biodiversity through deep history. This understanding of how ancient organisms both large and small responded to biological and environmental changes contributes to our understanding of climate change and biodiversity loss today.
