Start at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Category:Animalia and keep working
down the subcategories for examples.
A typical category chain goes:
(Fundamental -> Knowledge -> Science -> Natural sciences -> Biology ->
Life) -> Animalia -> Chordates -> Mammals -> Carnivora -> Canines ->
Dogs -> Dog breeds -> (185 articles about dog breeds)
My wikitime this week has been categorizing all mammals in a sensible
fashion. The chosen categories (typically at the KPCO and F levels) have
been extensively thought out at [[Wikipedia_talk:WikiProject Tree of
Life]] so comments are welcome there.
