About the site

Hello. This is a site to share photographs and observations. I normally work and publish on climate resilience, urban risk, natural resource management, and disaster response. My background is a biologist with more than 30 years of experience working largely in South and Southeast Asia.

Now I live in Leith, beside Edinburgh, Scotland.

Thismia is a genus of small, sensitive, plants. I named one after my wife – Thismia lauriana. You can see more about that here.

For more information, contact me at jkjarvie@thismiafocus.com.

Best wishes,
