Whit Gibbons received Henry Fitch Distinguished Herpetologist Award

Ecology professor Whit Gibbons received the Henry Fitch Distinguished Herpetologist Award at the national Joint Meeting of Ichthyologists and Herpetologists.

The recipient of the award is determined from nominations solicited both nationally and internationally by the organization. The prize is awarded to an individual for long-term excellence in the study of amphibian and reptile biology, based principally on the quality of his or her research, with consideration given to educational and service impacts of the individual’s career in herpetology. The award is considered to be a lifetime achievement award in the field.
