This seems like something everyone should know if they’re in the sciences and/or interested in reading scientific papers.


Of course, this only works if the authors are still living/working (lots of old taxonomy papers are difficult to get ahold of). But I was in academia and hadn’t even thought about this. It does seem super obvious now (and a great way to talk directly to someone with expert knowledge on a topic you’re interested in!)
