Tree of Life Web Project -
"A collaborative Internet project containing information about phylogeny and biodiversity.... We envisage the Tree of Life being used by those interested in locating information about a particular group of organisms, by biologists seeking identification keys, figures, phylogenetic trees, and other systematic information for a group of organisms, and by educators teaching about organismal diversity. The ToL project was originally designed for biologists. However, given the response of non-biologists to the project, including middle and high school students, we are encouraging authors to include information of interest to non-biologists."
