I’m interested in paleontology so I want to know if there is a Stack Exchange for paleontology. And if there is, please provide me the name and link.

Depending on your question, there are a few places you could try:

  • Biology
    For "general questions about biological concepts"

  • Earth Science
    "If your question is about meteorology, geophysics, geology, climatology, oceanography, geochemistry, or hydrology, then you are in the right place. The above list is not exhaustive, so if you feel your question is about earth science, go ahead and post it."

  • Astronomy
    For questions about the astronomical event that wiped out a lot of prehistoric life.

  • History
    Logically excludes prehistory, but for questions asking about the history of palaeontology, this would be the right site. A likely alternative is History of Science and Mathematics.

As always, read the per site Help pages, and if you're still unsure your question is appropriate, you can ask on their respective meta sites.


The topic seems to be more or less equally divided between the Biology Stack Exchange and Earth Science Stack Exchange sites. Both have a [palaeontology] tag with (now, as of December 2022) approximately a hundred questions.
