Dinosaurs are a group of reptiles that dominated terrestrial ecosystems for over 160 million years, from around until , at the end of the Cretaceous period, when all non-avian dinosaurs became extinct. Dinosaur remains have been found on every continent, including Antarctica. Vertebrate paleontology has become a global science, with major new discoveries in previously unexploited regions, most significantly the well-preserved feathered dinosaurs in China which have further solidified the link between the extinct non-avian dinosaurs and avian dinosaurs, birds.
