Sarraceniaceae of North America is one part of a two-part monograph providing the first complete study of the full diversity, ecology and taxonomy of all recognised species of the three genera of Sarraceniaceae, a family of pitcher plants, namely Darlingtonia, Heliamphora, and Sarracenia.
Sarraceniaceae of North America examines all species of Darlingtonia and Sarracenia from the United States and Canada, and includes the formal descriptions of many recently discovered infraspecific taxa that are introduced here for the very first time.
Complete with up-to-date conservation assessments, distribution maps and accounts of the wild ecology and habitats of each species of Sarraceniaceae, Sarraceniaceae of North America is a major and definitive taxonomic revision for all three genera of true pitcher plants of the New World. Visually beautiful and comprehensive, these books will appeal to both general readers and specialists who are interested in the natural history, diversity, ecology and relationships of Darlingtonia, Heliamphora, and Sarracenia.
