TaxonTree combines dynamic query interfaces and zoomable graphics to visually accommodate highly interconnected data such as the Linnaean hierarchy for Kingdom Animalia . Because the structure of the data is visualized, the interface should be suitable both for biologists and for the general public. Names of organisms are essential to any biological database, including genomic databases, so a tool that allows effective searching and browsing of these names has wide application.
