Following on from the previous discussion about names and literature,  
I've released a little "toy" that links animal genus names in  
Nomenclator Zoologicus to pages in the  Biodiversity Heritage Library  
(and a few other places where possible).

Woefully incomplete, partly due to the difficulty in parsing the  
"microcitations" so beloved by nomenclators, but it's one attempt to  
link names to something slightly more concrete.

For background please see my blog post http://iphylo.blogspot.com/2011/03/nomenclator-zoologicus-meets.html

or go straight to http://iphylo.org/~rpage/nz/



P.S. and yes I'm aware that Paul Kirk will go "yup, just what us  
fungal types have been doing for ages" ...
