      Description

      ex authors in names should be ignored. Apprently the sequence of authors differes between botanical and zoological names: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Author_citation_(botany)#Usage_of_the_term_.22ex.22

      Botanical example:
      Andropogon aromaticus Sieber ex Schult.
      should be normalized to just Andropogon aromaticus Schult. in the AuthorComparator

      See http://www.iapt-taxon.org/nomen/main.php?page=art46

          The authorComparator already does this, but gets the author order wrong and removes the real author while leaving the ex author.
