Review: "As mysterious as they are beautiful, carnivorous plants thrive in acidic bogs, open savannahs, and slow brown-water streams and lakes, all of which lack the mineral-rich soil associated with luxuriant plant growth. Their surprising vigor testifies to nature's remarkable powers of adaptation." "In this expanded and revised edition of his classic treatment, Donald Schnell examines in detail the forty-five species and numerous hybrids of carnivorous plants that grow in the United States and Canada. Information on each species includes an identifying description, the preferred habitat, the range in which it can be found, and the season for flowering and trapping, making this book a useful field guide as well as a fascinating source of leisure reading."--Jacket.
