More new species of Nepenthes (tropical pitcher plants) have been discovered and named during the first two decades of the 21st century than at any point previously, including more than twenty species since the publication of the first complete studies of the genus (Pitcher Plants of the Old World Vol. 2 and New Nepenthes Vol. 1). This volume complements those past works and brings understanding of the genus up to date!
