This chapter summarizes all dinosaur locations currently known worldwide. Geographic location is based on primary administrative divisions (e.g., states, departments, provinces, counties) of the countries in which dinosaur material has been found. Locations are annotated for lithostratigraphic unit (bed, formation, group, series), faunal composition, and stratigraphic horizon. The members of the fauna are present in rank order, roughly based on their phylogenetic relationships. The chapter also includes locations yielding skeletal remains and those that have produced tracks and/or trackways, as well as locations where eggs and eggshell fragments have been found.

Keywords:   dinosaur locations, geographic location, lithostratigraphic unit, faunal composition, stratigraphic horizon, skeletal remains, trackways
