Adrian Slack focuses on some fifty species, using photographs, line drawings, and diagrams to illustrate their peculiarities.

The mobile tentacles of the Sundews, the snapping lobes of the Venus Fly Trap, and the slippery, baited pitfalls of the Pitcher Plants seem the stuff of science fiction, yet these amazing plants do exist. Adrian Slack focuses on some fifty species, using photographs, line drawings, and diagrams to illustrate their peculiarities. He explores in detail the wily manner in which each type of plant entices, catches, and digests its prey.

Review:

Adrian Slack's book, Carnivorous Plants, is the best general survey book for a popular audience published to date. The author writes with clarity and an engaging style and successfully presents many interesting details without overwhelming the lay reader. The book contains a detailed section on cultivation, a list of sources, and a helpful glossary. It is written in nontechnical language, insofar as possible, but the professional botanist and horticulturist will also benefit from it.

Donald E. Schnell, Horticulture

This book has the most beautiful illustrations of carnivorous plants that I have ever seen.

Carroll E. Wood, Jr., Curator and Professor of Biology, TheArnold Arboretum of Harvard University
