Field Guide to the Pitcher Plants of Sulawesi
by Stewart McPherson and Alastair Robinson
Page size: 250 x 180 mm
Field Guide to the Pitcher Plants of the Sulawesi is a beautiful and colourful overview of the eleven species of Sulawesian pitcher plants (Nepenthes). Several species featured in this work have been discovered only in the last two years and are documented here for the very first time.
This lavishly illustrated guide book consists of a short introduction to Nepenthes, followed by an overview of the species known from Sulawesi (complete with full page map). Each species is then profiled over two pages with the use of three images (most of which have never been published before) and a brief, but detailed text summary written in clear, easy-to-understand English. Concluding sections coverNepenthes hybrids, conservation of Sulawesian pitcher plants, Bibliography, Index and About the Authors.
The species documented in this work are:
N. pitopangii (including a new population with spectacular colouration)
Particular highlights include:
1. coverage and unique images of the recently discoveredNepenthes nigra and N. undulatifolia.
2. the first ever listing of Sulawesian Nepenthes hybrids and the first photos of three hybrid plants.
3. Images of the newly discovered population of Nepenthes pitopangii (with spectacularly different colouration to the type population).
4. Beautiful imagery of many rare and little-known Nepenthes, including N. hamata, N. eymae and a unique, large variant ofN. mirabilis.
and much, much more…
