I haven't been able to find an exhaustive resource for comparing a wide variety of tonewoods, but there are a few places that describe the general properties of some of the more popular species.

the 'drum tuning bible' page compares a few woods:

and several manufacturer's pages give some info on various woods, I'll see if I can scare up a few of those-
