Cindy Johnson is professor of biology and environmental studies. She is a self-proclaimed "plant pusher" with passion for plant biology, ecology and the importance of plants in our world. She has a soft spot for woody plants and is especially interested in their biology and importance. Cindy teaches Conservation Biology, Plant Systematics, Organismal Biology, Environmental Justice and the Natural History of Tanzania. Cindy's research is in plant conservation, particularly the rare genus of ferns, moonworts (Botrychium). 'Moonwort Madness' is a disease common among Cindy's students that results in an obsessive interest in these bizarre ferns. She also has a strong interest in trees and was the previous director of the Linnaeus Arboretum.
"Any good poet, in our age at least must begin with the scientific view of the world, and any scientist worth listening to must be something of a poet, must possess the ability to communicate to the rest of us his sense of love and wonder at what his work discovers." -- Edward Abbey
