      Description

      Unlike in botany, it is not recommended to abbreviate the name of the
      author in zoology: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Author_citation_(zoology)#cite_note-4

      If a name was established by more than three authors, only the first author may be given, followed by the term "et al.". The ParsedName rendering methods should do this - which means they should also try to parse the authorship into a team list of authors as the AuthorComparator already does. Authorteam parsing code could then be moved into the name parser.
