Carnivorous plants are some of our most intriguing and colourful native species. This book contains photographs and information about each of the 20 flesh-eating plants native to Canada, Greenland, and the French Overseas Collectivity of St.-Pierre et Miquelon—all of which grow in the Atlantic provinces of Canada. Written in non-technical language, the book contains information about the habitat of these peculiar plants (1 pitcherplant, 2 butterworts, 6 sundews, and 11 bladderworts), their evolution, and their conservation needs. It discusses how they attract, capture, and digest insects and other small animals, and why they do it. This book is heavily illustrated, with 373 colour photographs, 40 distribution maps, and line drawings.
