   I believe most of the Hadrosaur work of Jack Horner at Egg Mountain,
is upland material.  In one of his books he proposed hat the reason most
juvenile dinosaurs had been found in poor condition in marine dediments
(prior to his dig at Egg Mountain) is that they were originally upland
and had been washed down a river or creek in mostly-disarticulated
fashion, hence the poor fossil record (prior to Egg Mountain).
   He had proposed that upland was were the dinosaurs were going to lay
their eggs, so when he started looking in that kind of area, he started
to find eggs.
