Pitcher plants include the largest and most spectacular of all carnivorous plants. So-called because they produce highly specialised foliage that takes the form of hollow, water-filled "pitchers", these extraordinary plants lure and prey upon arthropods and other small animals. The pitcher plants of the Old World also trap the largest prey of all carnivorous plants, including on rare occasions, vertebrates as large as frogs, mice and even rats. This two volume work examines both genera of Old World pitcher plants (Nepenthes and Cephalotus) and documents the ecology and natural diversity of every known species for the first time and in unparalleled detail... Pitcher Plants of the Old World Volume One consists of the following chapters; Introduction, Carnivorous Plants of the World, The Pitcher Plants of the Old World, The Evolution of the Pitcher Plants of the Old World, Trapping Processes, Infauna, Nepenthes of Borneo and Nepenthes of Peninsular Malaysia and Indochina.

A study of the horticulture of carnivorous plants, with comprehensive chapters on care and cultivation. It explores the astonishingly subtle manner in which each type of flytrap entices, catches and digests its prey. The author focuses on 50 species, from the mountains of Borneo to the Australian bush to the Amazon jungle, using photographs, line illustrations and diagrams to illustrate their peculiarities.

Carnivorous plants have fascinated botanists, evolutionary biologists, ecologists, physiologists, developmental biologists, anatomists, horticulturalists, and the general public for centuries. Charles Darwin was the first scientist to demonstrate experimentally that some plants could actuallyattract, kill, digest, and absorb nutrients from insect prey; his book Insectivorous Plants (1875) remains a widely-cited classic. Since then, many movies and plays, short stories, novels, coffee-table picture books, and popular books on the cultivation of carnivorous plants have been produced.However, all of these widely read products depend on accurate scientific information, and most of them have repeated and recycled data from just three comprehensive, but now long out of date, scientific monographs. The field has evolved and changed dramatically in the nearly 30 years since the lastof these books was published, and thousands of scientific papers on carnivorous plants have appeared in the academic journal literature. In response, Ellison and Adamec have assembled the world's leading experts to provide a truly modern synthesis. They examine every aspect of physiology,biochemistry, genomics, ecology, and evolution of these remarkable plants, culminating in a description of the serious threats they now face from over-collection, poaching, habitat loss, and climatic change which directly threaten their habitats and continued persistence in them.a href="http://harvardforest.fas.harvard.edu/aaron-ellison"Aaron Ellison/a

Insects represent over half of the planet’s biologicaldiversity. This popular textbook provides a comprehensiveintroduction to this extraordinary diversity, and places entomologycentral to the theory and practice of evolutionary and ecologicalstudies. Fully revised, this fifth edition opens with a chapterconcerning the popular side of insect studies, including insects incitizen science, zoos and butterfly houses, and insects as food forhumans and animals. Key features of insect structure, function, behaviour, ecology and classification areintegrated with appropriate molecular studies. Much of thebook is organized around major biological themes: living on theground, in water, on plants, in colonies, and as predators,parasites/parasitoids and prey insects. A strong evolutionary themeis maintained throughout. There is major revision to the chapter on systematics and a newchapter, Insects in a Changing World, includes insect responses to,and the consequences of, both climate change and human-assistedglobal alterations to distributions. Updated‘Taxoboxes’ demonstrate topical issues and provideconcise information on all aspects of each of the 28 majorgroupings (orders) of insects, plus the three orders of non-insecthexapods. New boxes describe a worrying increase in insect threatsto landscape and commercial trees (including eucalypts, palms andcoffee) and explain the value of genetic data, includingevolutionary developmental biology and DNA barcoding, in insectbiodiversity studies. The authors maintain the clarity and conciseness of earliereditions, and extend the profuse illustrations with new hand-drawnfigures. Over 50 colour photographs, together with the informativetext and an accompanying website with links to video clips,appendices, textboxes and further reading lists, encourage a deeperscientific study of insects. The book is intended as the principaltext for students studying entomology, as well as a reference textfor undergraduate and graduate courses in the fields of ecology,agriculture, fisheries and forestry, palaeontology, zoology, andmedical and veterinary science.
