After publication of this work [1], we noted that we inadvertently failed to include the complete list of all coauthors: co-author Marion Patte was missed. In addition, the affiliations for Cédric Sueur and Julie Vallée were mistakably reversed. The full list of authors, corrected author affiliations and the updated Authors Contributions section are reported here, and have also been corrected in the original article. We apologize for any inconvenience this oversight may have caused.
