Dennis Fowler worked as a missionary in Zambia, mainly with the Ila people on the Kafue Flats. His interest in ethnobotany was first aroused by his discovery that the Ila language has over 740 words for trees and shrubs. He also wanted to help in the search for a cheap local cure for malaria, having himself suffered badly from the disease. He is the author of Zambian Plants: Their vernacular names and uses (Kew Publishing, 2007).
