http://users.chello.be/cr28796/LathCong.jpgPaul Latham is a retired agriculturalist having worked in Africa with the Salvation Army on farmer training in Kenya, Uganda and the Congo (Kinshasa), and is now involved in producing booklets on :

  • Edible caterpillars and their food plants in Bas-Congo.  2003, revised edition on CD 2004
  • Les chenilles comestibles et leurs plantes nourricières dans la province du Bas-Congo. 2003 (out of print)
  • Bee plants of Bas-Congo and southern Tanzania. CD - 2003. Can be purchased from Bees for Development http://www.beesfordevelopment.org
  • Useful plants of Bas-Congo Province, Democratic Republic of the Congo. CD – 2004. Can be purchased from http://www.nhbs.com/
  • Quelques plantes médicinales du Bas-Congo et leurs usages by Kibungu Kembelo, director of the Kisantu Botanical Garden.

Thanks to the kindness of Paul Latham we are able to illustrate our catalogue of the Kinshasa region. Other pictures are due to Frieda Billiet and Paul Bamps of the National Botanical Garden of Belgium. We are grateful for their contribution.
