The American Society of Plant Taxonomists (ASPT) has chosen Dr. Kanchi N. Gandhi, HUH Bibliographer and Nomenclature Specialist, to be honored with an ASPT Distinguished Service Award. This award is given only occasionally and is reserved for those individuals who have made exceptional efforts for ASPT or the plant-systematics community in general. The ASPT received nominations documenting the long and intensive commitment that Dr. Gandhi has made to understanding and interpreting the International Code of Botanical Nomenclature and curating the International Plant Name Index data.
