iSpecies.org is a great mashup from Glasgow-based Roderic Page who says it's "a test of E O Wilson's idea of a web page for each species". The application uses three data sources: the NCBI Entrez life sciences search engine, Yahoo Image Search, and a custom Perl script to search Google Scholar. As an simple example, here's a search on frog.
