Fossil provide us evidence about

  •  The organisms that lived long ago such as the time period during which they lived, their structure etc.
  •  Evolutionary development of species i.e., line of their development.
  •  Connecting links between two groups. For example, feathers present in some dinosaurs means that birds are very closely related to reptiles.
  •  Which organisms evolved earlier and which later.
  •  Development of complex body designs from the simple body designs.
