Zoological Record: Internet Resource Guide for Zoology
"The Resource Guide is biased towards sites of educational, scientific and academic interest, though others may be included if they contain information relating to the biology of 'exotic' animals. Particular emphasis is given to natural biology and systematics, and both living and fossil animals are covered. An overall guide to subject categories and an index to animal groups is included, together with a guide to conferences and index search of the entire site. Systematics and taxonomy related subject areas are given particular emphasis, and this section additionally includes some links to sites dealing with organism groups other than animals (plants, bacteria, fungi etc)."
