How can I sort a list of Authors by the number of Species described ?

On the Menu, hover your mouse over "Data", Select and Click on "Individuals".  After "loading",  a list of about 10 000 Individual Authors is displayed. Click on the column heading "Species Described" to sort this column. This column can be sorted by ascending (0 - 9) or descending values (9 - 0). If it is sorted by ascending values, Click on the heading again to change the sort method.
You will now get a list of Authors sorted by the number of species described as shown below:

This page also shows the number of genera described by each author - This Column can be sorted in the same way.

The top ten authors sorted by species described, are listed below:

1932  Bleeker
1848  Valenciennes
