Sojourn of the Nitrogen: Life and Death in a Salt Marsh
by Dr. David Johnson
Dr. Johnson earned a B.S. in Environmental Science at the University of Central Arkansas in 2003. He earned his Ph.D. in 2008 from Louisiana State University as he studied the effect of human activities on salt marsh invertebrates. He is a Research Associate at the Marine Biological Laboratory in Woods Hole, Massachusetts, where he studies the effect of chronic nutrient enrichment on marsh structure and function.
