Have you found the citation for an article you want in another article's bibliography or on Google Scholar? You can use the libraries' Journals Search to see whether and where the Whitewater libraries has the periodical (journal, magazine, or newspaper) that the article came from. Start by typing the periodical title (not the article title) in the box below. This is also available from the libraries' homepage.
These databases are good for finding specific articles on a variety of subjects, which may or may not contain detailed information about the phylogeny of organisms. I recommend starting with books or websites.

Science Reference Center
Science Reference Center is a comprehensive research database that provides full text access to nearly 640 science encyclopedias, reference books,periodicals and other science-oriented content. Topics covered include: biology, chemistry, earth & space science, physics, science & society, science as inquiry, scientists, technology and wildlife.
Most databases have some full text articles in addition to article citations. When an article is not available in that database, use button/link to determine whether and where the UWW libraries have it.
In Research@UWW, go to the View It section of an article's record.
In either case, look in the View It section next to see if there is a link to the online article. If it is not online, scroll down to the Get It section to see if the article is physically in one of the UWW libraries. If it is not available either way, you may order the article by clicking on the We Can Get it for You (Document Delivery/ILLiad) link which will appear in the Get It area.
If you are not in a database or Research@UWW, use the Journal Search (also on the libraries' homepage) to determine whether and where the Library has a particular periodical (journal, magazine, newspaper, etc.), then search the periodical for the desired article.
