Abstract:

Details 45 species and numerous hybrids of carnivorous plants, including identifying descriptions, preferred habitat, distribution, and flowering and trapping season.

In this splendid addition to the botanical literature, pathologist and dedicated naturalist Schnell provides valuable new information based on his more than 40 years of fieldwork. The 45 species and additional hybrids that grow in the US and Canada are given identifying descriptions, habitat preferences, geographical ranges, and flowering and trapping seasons, all helpful in making this a field guide as well as a source of the latest information on this fascinating group of plants. A lengthy introductory chapter includes cultivation methods followed by others on the Venus flytrap, pitcher plants, sundews, butterworts, bladderworts, possible other carnivorous seed plants, and conservation issues. An appendix on metric conversions is followed by a glossary, an extensive bibliography, and an index of plant names. Many maps, drawings, and 200 truly excellent color photographs, virtually all by the author, contribute greatly to the wealth of textual information and therefore to the usefulness and importance of this book. Highly recommended for every library's collection of botanical materials for both scientists and hobbyists. General readers; graduate students; faculty. L.G. Kavaljian California State University, Sacramento--Choice Reviews.
