Approximately 700 species have been named so far, although

recent research suggests that half of these have not been

sufficently differentiated from existing species. Recent studies

have estimated that there are still 700-900 more genera to be

discovered, and many more species in the existing 540 genera.

As far as the number of dinosaurs as individuals, recent finds

in Alberta indicate that the Centrosaurus and Styracosaurus

travelled in herds of hundreds if not thousands. This makes

dinosaur numbers like the numbers of wildebeast in the old African

movies or buffalo on the North American plains.
