Field Guide to the Pitcher Plants of the Sumatra and Java offers a beautifully illustrated overview of the thirty seven species of Sumatran and Javan pitcher plants (Nepenthes). This field guide features many species that have been discovered or rediscovered recently, and the images included in this work are among the first to be published.

Each species is profiled over two pages with three representative images, most of which have never been published before, and a concise summary of key features written in accessible English.
