Assistant Professor, Oceanography

Dr. Johnson's research interests encompass a wide range of topics related to zooplankton ecology. In particular, his program explores phenomena that impact organisms, communities and populations. Specific research topics include planktonic predator-prey interactions, metamorphosis, phenotypic plasticity, larval transport, settlement, and larval behaviors that can be linked to these issues.
Dr. Johnson's revision of "A Guide to Marine Coastal Plankton and Marine Invertebrate Larvae", 2nd Edition, is used as a supplement in biology and oceanography laboratories around the world.
