Very well made, exceptional documentation, citations, resources.  If it listed common names with the scientific names this would be much more user friendly.  As it is my high school students would be spending too much time sorting through scientific names and not enough time studing the species.

After spending an hour on this site (and still not seeing everything!) I knew it
was a great site to create an assignment for. I had fun looking at pictures and
learning about the kingdoms. Students will enjoy the adventure.

This is an excellent overview of classification systems for the living kingdoms.
Descriptions, along with pictures and references, are provided for
representatives within each of the kingdoms.
