Description

Carnivorous plants are the most unusual of all flowering plants. So called because they have evolved the unique ability to attract, trap, kill and digest insects and other small animals.

These plants turn the tables of the natural world and prey on fauna in order to augment nutrients that are otherwise not available in the often harsh and extreme habitats in which they grow.

This work examines the wild ecology and natural diversity of all known genera of carnivorous plants and examines the remarkable and often spectacular means by which they trap and kill animal prey.
