Dr. Rebecca Johns is an associate professor of geography. She received her Ph.D. from Rutgers University and her M.S. from the University of Wisconsin-Madison, both in geography. She holds a B.A. in Anthropology from Stanford University. She is currently the secretary of the Florida Society of Geographers. Dr. Johns’ recent publications focus on local scale problems related to Florida’s social and environmental landscapes, including issues of native plants, residential yardscapes, and lawns, and food deserts.
