iSpecies is a very simple test of E O Wilson's idea of a web page for each species. The data displayed are generated "on the fly" by querying other data sources, such as NCBI, Yahoo Images, and Google Scholar. The site was announced on TAXACOM and the Taxonomic Databases Working Group - Structure of Descriptive Data lists on 2 November 2005. It was blogged by Leigh Dodds and Danny Ayers.
