comment Citation style in biblatex: (1) get rid of first names; (2) remove comma before year
Wow, you're fast. I pressed enter early and was still editing my reply. Thanks for the solution to (1)!. I still need to get rid of commas in citations, before the year. I don't know how to find the biblatex version. biber --version gives: biber version: 0.9.8.

My call is: \usepackage[firstinits=false,uniquename=false,uniquelist=false,citestyle=author‌​year-comp,bibstyle=authoryear-comp ,sortcites=false,natbib=true,block=space,url=false,doi=true,backend=biber]{bibla‌​tex} after adding your two suggestions. They solve problem (1)! I doubt I have real disambiguation problems. It would be nice to know what biber/biblatex thinks is ambiguous (I couldn't tell).
