Palaeos is the name of a website devoted to creating a comprehensive cladogram of life. While substantial progress has been made in that direction, it still is notoriously incomplete (lacking, among other things, a page on fucking elephants) and its method of cladistics is somewhat circumspect, since the staff of Palaeos tends to be, without reason of course, "skeptical" of molecular phylogenetics. All in all, Palaeos is a fine resource if you want to learn about paleontology in depth, but recognize that its phylogenetic trees are somewhat dubious.
