Description:

This work explores the diversity of the seven genera of sticky-leaved insect-eating plants of the world (Byblis, Drosera, Drosophyllum, Ibicella, Pinguicula, Roridula and Triphyophyllum). These plants produce shimmering leaves lined with glistening droplets of glue that attract, trap and kill insects and other small animals. The first and only study of the sticky-leaved insect-eating plants and represents an unparalleled source of information on the subject. The strengths of this book undoubtedly include (1) its uniquely detailed content;(2) the 279 spectacular figures including breath taking images and useful distribution maps and (3) the very first published images of dozens of species of sticky-leaved insect-eating plants. This book is up-to-date, uniquely detailed, focused, and visually beautiful. It is technically written yet is accessible to specialist and non-specialist audiences and will be a valued source of information for all interested in the sticky-leaved insect-eating plants and carnivorous plants in general!
