'... helps you identify and cultivate an astonishingly diverse and interesting range of carnivorous plants.
Beginning with a discussion of the history and mythology associated with 'people eating plants', Gordon Cheers proves that there is no such thing as a typical carnivorous plant.
Informative descriptions of over 100 species are accompanied by full colour photographs, showing the beauty and variety of these plants. Details of propagation and trapping mechanisms are included, as well as information and photographs about his field trips in search of carnivorous plants in nature.
Finally, the plant list contains all known carnivorous plants, showing their nomenclature and history at a glance.
Photographs and black and white illustrations, maps and tables combine to provide a detailed guide to the world of carnivorous plants.'
