# Remove parenthesis around year from citation with biblatex

I want to remove the parenthesis around the year from a citation using biblatex. Hopefully the code and screenshot of the outputted PDF explains what I'm currently getting and what I need.

\documentclass{article}

\usepackage[style=authoryear-comp, maxcitenames=2, maxbibnames=50]{biblatex}

\usepackage{filecontents}
\begin{filecontents}{\jobname.bib}
@article{IngerEtAl2006using,
title={Using daily ration models and stable isotope analysis to predict biomass depletion by herbivores},
author={Inger, Richard and Ruxton, Graeme D and Newton, Jason and Colhoun, Kendrew and Mackie, Kerry and Robinson, James A and Bearhop, Stuart},
journal={Journal of Applied Ecology},
volume={43},
number={5},
pages={1022--1030},
year={2006},
publisher={Wiley Online Library},
tag={}
}

\end{filecontents}
\begin{document}

This line shows how the citations appears in the PDF (e.g. \textcite{IngerEtAl2006using})\\\\

I want the citation to appear like this: (e.g. Inger et al. 2006).

\printbibliography

\end{document}


• Use \parencite[e.g.][]{IngerEtAl2006using}. And don't use  \\\\  if you don't want tons of "underfull hbox" messages. Enlarge \parskip if you want more space between paragraphs. – Ulrike Fischer Jun 24 '15 at 12:04
• That's done it. Do you want to add that as an answer? – luciano Jun 24 '15 at 12:12

Use \parencite[e.g.][]{IngerEtAl2006using} instead of \textcite in parentheses.
And don't use \\\\ if you don't want tons of "underfull hbox" messages. Enlarge \parskip if you want more space between paragraphs.
