Looks essentially what a wikispecies should look like, I guess. I guess a
w-species would focus more on the biology, history, genealogy, genetics, or
what, so that it's different from the w-pedia? My only thought was to click
on the taxonomic names to go down to what you wanted, with perhaps shortcuts
along the way to more common or popular animals/plants, etc.

Taxoboxes are a standard part of every WikiProject Tree of Life article. The
only time there are breaks in the navigation are when an intermediate
article does not yet exist for that taxon.
But your example already exists. Start at
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eukaryote and work your way down.
As time passes there will be few and fewer breaks until all taxa are covered
(hopefully every species known to science will also be covered).
There could also be a category for each taxon, but that needs to be worked
