          Removing authorship for families and above: https://github.com/gbif/checklistbank/commit/c7f034b8c7c31d7a7f8f17214060461161f81478

          As we have a rather vague interpretation of the taxonomy of higher ranks it is better to not use any authorship. The Catalog of Life also does not use them on families: http://www.gbif.org/species/search?dataset_key=7ddf754f-d193-4cc9-b351-99906754a03b&rank=FAMILY
