N. F. Johnson (Norman F.)

Norm Johnson is the Martha N. and John C. Moser Chair in Arthropod Biosystematics and Biological Diversity, Professor in the Departments of Evolution, Ecology & Organismal Biology (75%) and Entomology (25%) at Ohio State, and Director of the C.A. Triplehorn Insect Collection. He received his B.S. from the State University of New York College of Environmental Science & Forestry in 1976, followed by a Ph.D. from Cornell University in 1981. Since then, Columbus, Ohio has been home. His research in recent years has been a combination of systematics of Scelionidae and biodiversity informatics.
