        I have few references which may get you started, although my
experience is largely with the Late Cretaceous of Texas. I honestly cannot
think of any Louisiana hadrosaur material offhand...

Davies, K. L., 1983. Hadrosaurian dinosaurs of Big Bend National Park,
Brewster County, Texas. Unpublished Master's thesis, University of Texas at
Austin, 236 pp.
        [To date the only review of hadrosaurs in Trans-Pecos Texas]

Lehman, T. M., 1997. Late Campanian dinosaur biogeography in the western
interior of North America. In: D. C. Wolberg, E. Stump, and G. Rosenberg
(eds.), Dinofest International: Proceedings of a Symposium Held at Arizona
State University. Dinofest International, pp. 223-243
        [Not specifically hadrosaurs, but discusses taxonomic and diversity
variations between Campanian Texas and Canada]

And, for all your duckbill needs, there is the:

BRETT-SURMAN, M.K., 1996(1985).  "The Bibliography of Hadrosaurian Dinosaurs". 
        [Go to this site, copy this bibliography into a word-processor, and
search to your heart's content!]

There is also the Head article in the last JVP (I can dig up the reference
if necessary... just don't have it right now) on the Cenomanian hadrosaur
_Protohadros_. An earlier article (cited therein) in JP describes some
fragmentary material also from the Cenomanian Woodbine Formation.

As an aside, since Texan material is just now recieving adequate attention,
you may wish to look into New Mexico hadrosaur material, about which a good
deal has been written, going all the way back to Barnum Brown.

        Hope this helps,
