JW Dowey's bio


Working in the ecology and pollution areas, James has had a fruitful career in lecturing throughout several countries. He has knowledge of many varied environmental projects.

Hobbies include various bits and pieces of paleontology and horticulture, so he often loses himself in forests or hills, collecting or studying long-forgotten legends as well as more practical objects.
