Some very fine taxonomic sites have been browsed thru to find information to
my pages. If such a Internet-source was used in making of a tree, a reference
can usually be found beneath the trees. I recommend whole-heartly that you go
to see the original page, because those usually contain additional or more detailed
The Tree of Life Project, the only peer-reviewed
taxonomy-site in net, is an ongoing project to present a detailed phylogenetic
view of life. Unfortunately ToL strives towards a consensus view in it's pages
and is thus both badly "under construction" and also sometimes out of date.
aims to be the leading web-source on the field of evolutionary and paleontological
studies. Toby White and Alan Kazlev have started this interresting web-project, which
aims to combine Toby's Vertebrate
note's and Alan's the Kheper site
to a single resource. They were nice enough to invite me to join them as a contributor.
by Jim Bourdon's – Everything (and then somemore) you have ever wanted to know about fossil sharks.
He also has nice library of interesting online .pdf -publications.
- The allaround reference site of everything fishy. It gives a quite comprehensive view of this largest of vertebrate groups.
The TIGR Reptile Database
[the former EMBL Reptile Database] gives a nice cataloguist view of modern reptiles, but is poor dealing with the interesting fossil reptiles or modern reptilian phylogeny.
Dinosaur-lovers should go to T. Michael Keesey's The Dinosauricon, which has been voted as the best dinosaur-site in the web, several times actually...
People interested of mammalian studies should visit Mr. Trevor Dykes' ”Mesozoic Eucynodonts – an internet directory“, which once again proves, that you don't have to be a professional to do professional-grade job.
Keep on the Good Work, Trevor!!
I would also like to recommend Dr. John Alroy's "North American fossil mammal systematics database", which is a rather good source. Unfortunately it represents only specieslevel, and can thus be rather confusing, obscuring larger evolutionary relationships.
