About Dr. Robert H. Johnson:

Dr. Robert H. Johnson received his B.S. in environmental science from Belmont Abbey College, an M.S. in plant biology from Western Carolina University and a Ph.D. from the University of South Carolina with concentrations in ecology and biochemistry. Dr. Johnson continued his training as a post-doctoral research fellow at the University of Minnesota – Twin Cities, and as a research associate at SUNY Buffalo. Prior to coming to Medaille, Dr. Johnson was an assistant professor of botany at Stephen F. Austin State University in Texas. He is currently an associate professor at Medaille and Director of the Medaille Honors Program. He teaches scientific discovery, ecology, botany and epidemiology/biostatistics.

Since 2006, he has coauthored five presentations made to the Society for the Study of Evolution and the Ecological Society of America. His most recent papers are published in the Journal of Chemical Ecology (2008), Biochemical Systematics and Ecology (2008), American Journal of Botany (2009), and Chemoecology (2010).
