Dr. Bart Johnson is a Professor of Landscape Architecture at the University of Oregon. His training in agronomy (B.S.), landscape architecture (MLA) and ecology (Ph.D.) reflect his lifelong passion for learning how to integrate people and their use of the land with native ecosystems and evolutionary processes. His research is collaborative and interdisciplinary, with the goal of enhancing society’s capacity to adapt and innovate in the face climate change and human population growth. He believes that solutions must be founded in deep knowledge of how earth’s ecosystems sustain the foundations of life and provide the key to life’s and humanity’s resilience.

He’s been a PI or co-PI on research grants totally nearly $10 million U.S. and feels he’s just figuring out how to write proposals that get funded.
