First dinosaur record from Tennessee: a Campanian hadrosaur

  • Jonathan R. Bryan (a1), Daniel L. Frederick (a1), David R. Schwimmer (a2) and William G. Siesser (a3)

Recently, several dinosaur bones were rediscovered in the paleontological collections at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, with a label indicating that the material was collected from the Cretaceous of west Tennessee. Since dinosaur remains have never been reported from Tennessee, this discovery prompted further investigation.
