Welcome to Biology & Palaeontology Questions and Answers!
This is a new service aimed at school children across the UK to help them get involved and interested in science. Collectively we are a group of professional biologists and biology workers (ecologists, museum curators, science writers and the like) who have got together to answer your questions about biology. Everything that you read here will be provided by real, working scientists who are experts in all aspects of biology. If you look below at our older posts (and back into the archives on the right) you will see some mini-biographies of many of the people who will be answering your questions.
Together, we are in a great position to answer your questions about biology, evolution, palaeontology, fossils, conservation and the environment. All you have to is click on the 'comments' button that appears at the bottom of this post (or any of the more recent posts), put in your first name, your age and your question, and then submit it. One of us will get back to you as soon as possible with an answer to your question. We will post up your question and our answer as a new post (like this one) on the main board so it is easy to find! We look forward to answering your questions, so give us some to answer!
We have been a bit slow over the last few weeks (it being Christmas and all) so aplologies for the delays in replying to the questions we have received. Normal service will resume shortly! We will be moving shortly to a new and much improved website! One of our Bloggers (Sarda Sahney) is working hard on the new site and you can take a look now. Not much is finished yet, so please bear with us.
This is all possble thanks to a very generous grant from the Palaeontological Association we are in the process of setting-up new pages. All will be revealed in due course, but we are still available for questions and everything that is on here will be transferred and archived in the new site. Hope to see you there soon!
