Wikipedia: Fossils (from Latin fossus, literally having been dug up) are the preserved remains or traces of animals (also known as zoolites), plants, and other organisms from the remote past.
The totality of fossils, both discovered and undiscovered, and their placement in fossiliferous (fossil-containing) rock formations and sedimentary layers (strata) is known as the fossil record.
The study of fossils across geological time, how they were formed, and the evolutionary relationships between taxa (phylogeny) are some of the most important functions of the science of paleontology.
