Morning surprise: a new paper I didn’t quite realise I had coauthored…

captureThe third thing I did this morning was check my email (I’ve learned never to check my email first thing – there are so many better ways to start the day).  I was surprised to find a Google notification about the publication of a paper I coauthored – what paper could that be?  Must be someone else.  But nope, there’s my name buried amongst dozens and dozens of coauthors!  I can’t count high enough to know how many, but I pushed the PgDn button 13 times to get to the end of the list.  This is the second mass authorship paper based on our pan trap studies of bees – I am beginning to feel like I could pretend to be a Big Data Ecologist!  Does <1% of an authorship count for anything other than fun?
