Dear All,

I've written a short blog post looking at what sites Google returns  
when you search for all mammal species by scientific name. Can't say  
I'm surprised by the results, but the magnitude of the difference  
between Wikipedia and the rest is quite striking.

The post is at http://iphylo.blogspot.com/2009/09/google-wikipedia-and-eol.html 
   (or http://tinyurl.com/n7ey68 is that gets mangled).
