I can't remember offhand specifically what is
included, but John Foster has published a fair few
papers on biogeography/biostrat of the Morission, and
likely you fill find your answer there. Your best bet
is his big NMMNH bulletin special volume (2003):

<from an old post by Andy Heckert>
 "The Morrison Volume" (NMMNH Bulletin 23)---$15 U.S.

  A monograph based on John Foster's dissertation at
the University of Colorado---this is the most detailed
and comprehensive attempt at deciphering the
vertebrate paleoecology of the Morrison Formation ever
undertaken. The appendix alone is worth the price, as
it lists the fauna, depositional environments,
stratigraphic level, and more of ~250 Morrison
Formation quarries. If you work on any aspect of the
Morrison and its fauna, you need this book.

and I don't have this as PDF (!), although I do have a
hardcopy, and it's a good read.
