Mikko's Phylogeny Archive is an amateur paleontology website maintained by Mikko Haaramo, a student at the University of Helsinki's Department of Geology, Division of Geology and Palaeontology.
The entire website is essentially one enormous supertree, based on material from many different sources, and consisting of thousands of linked phylogenetic trees. Each page presents a cladogram that is hyperlinked to its parent and daughter cladograms, plus a section for references. Taxa of uncertain relationship are indicated by a question mark. No indication is given for what part of the cladogram is based on which specific references.
Although the Archive is hosted by the Finnish Museum of the Natural History servers, the museum has no formal affilitiation with it. Haaramo points out that the site is a private project, is not peer-reviewed, and should not be used as a scientific reference.
As of 11 May, 2006, Mikko's Phylogeny Archive contains nearly 4,600 pages, most of them cladograms or taxonomic listings. Together with Palaeos, it is currently the only website to provide a near comprehensive listing of many groups, genera and species of extinct organisms, along with recent taxa.
