When is a paleontologist a paleontologist?
One thing i've always been curious about is how prominent paleontologists
with degrees in fields like geology and anatomy can pronounce themselves
dinosaur paleontologists. Wouldn't they only be geologists? Is it that after
much independent study you self-proclaim yourself as a paleontologist?
what's the deal? Personally, I want to be one of the worlds top experts on
theropod dinos (analogous to where Phil Currie is now), but the only classes
available to me are geology, biology, and zoology.
