does anyone know of an online database on mammals (or a subset
at order or family level) which has the type of information that
is in "orders and Familes of Recent Mammals of the World" (Jones
and Anderson?

I am also interested in a database on birds.

In particular, I am looking for db's to use as testbeds for data
conversion to our knowledge base, which I hope to use in
conjunction with a cladistics program for classification.  the
classification would employ artificial intelligence techniques
to augment traditional programs in cladistics.

Is anyone pursueing this marriage of taxonomy and artificial
