There are so many people (children mainly) who are interested in dinosaurs and paleontology in general, but don't really care about zoology at all.. I think it is quite sad, but I can understand where it is coming from. People admire huge and strong animal, such as dinosaurs, and they are very magnificent animals indeed. But I, also, can see beauty in modern species, and I believe zoology is even more important than paleontology. The environment and a lot of wild animals are on the edge of extinction, and it is our duty to protect them. Of course, paleontology is an important science too, but at the end of they dead, dinosaurs are dead, and there is not much we can do about it. But there is a lot of things we can do about those modern species which are in danger right now.

Also, I can't imagine how you can study paleontology if you haven't got basic knowledge of zoology and animal behaviour..

Therefore, even though paleontology is important and I absolutely like it, I voted for zoology.

Paleontology is nothing without zoology and zoology is nothing without biology.

I don't think so. It is not necessary to know biology to study animal's behaviour and social life, and stuff like that. But you must have some knowledge of zoology to study paleontology.

If u study zoology you must know biology. If not - you're still a naturalist.
