This is one of those words you are bound to forget! A scientist who studies dinosaur fossils is called a Palaeontologist. Modern palaeontologist's study how long term physical changes of climate have affected the evolution of life and how things have responded to those changes.
Many palaeontologists specialise in different species and different bones and fossils. Some deal with only the backbones, others study the microbiotics of dead creatures. Some famous and noble past palaeontologists include the great Charles Darwin who collected fossils of South American mammals during his trip on the Beagle and Mary Anning, who was a notable early palaeontologist. She was famous for finding several fossils in her home town of Lyme Regis and is still highly regarded today.

Larger names in this field include Mary and Richard Leakey, Donald Johanson and in more recent times, Richard Barsbold who has given us much evidence and understanding of the dinosaur and the evolution of birds.
