Carnivorous plants are the most unusual of all flowering plants. So called because they have evolved the unique ability to attract, trap, kill and digest insects and other small animals. These plants turn the tables of the natural world and prey on fauna in order to augment nutrients that are otherwise not available in the often harsh and extreme habitats in which they grow. Carnivorous Plants and their Habitats, Volume Two examines the wild ecology and natural diversity of all known genera of carnivorous plants and examines the remarkable and often spectacular means by which they trap and kill animal prey.

Carnivorous Plants and their Habitats, Volume Two covers genus accounts of the Sticky-Leaved Insect Plants, Corkscrew Plants and Bladderworts, including Triphyophyllum, Drosera, Drosophyllum, Roridula, Byblis, Pinguicula, Ibicella and Proboscidea, Philcoxia, Genlisea, and Utricularia and concluding chapters.
