Did you know that some plants eat special food? Sunlight is not enough for them and they lack the capacity to create their own food. That is why they prey on insects. They have a unique scent that attracts their small prey so they just sit and wait until they can gobble something up! Should you be afraid of these carnivorous plants too?

Physiology and Behaviour of Plants
Language: en
Pages: 320
Authors: Peter Scott
Categories: Science
Type: BOOK - Published: 2008-03-10 - Publisher: Wiley-Interscience
Physiology and Behaviour of Plants looks at plants and how they sense and respond to their environment. It takes the traditional plant physiology book into a new dimension by demonstrating how the biochemical observations underlie the behaviour of the plant. In many ways the book parallels courses studied at university on animal physiology and behaviour. The plant has to meet the same challenges as an animal to survive, but overcomes these challenges in very different ways. Students learn to think of plants not only as dynamic organisms, but aggressive, territorial organisms capable of long-range communication. Hallmark features include: Based on a successful course that the author has run for several years at Sussex University, UK Relates plant biochemistry to plant function Printed in four colour throughout Includes a wealth of illustrations and photographs that engages the reader’s attention and reinforce key concepts explored within the text Presents material in a modern ‘topic’ based approach, with many relevant and exciting examples to inspire the student An accompanying web site will include teaching supplements This innovative textbook is the ultimate resource for all students in biology, horticulture, forestry and agriculture.

Glistening Carnivores
Language: en
Pages: 392
Authors: Stewart McPherson
Categories: Carnivorous plants
Type: BOOK - Published: 2008 - Publisher:
The seven genera of sticky-leaved insect-eating plants are uniquely beautiful and captivate the interest of all who behold them. Each produces shimmering leaves lined with glistening droplets of glue that attract, trap and kill insects and other small animals. Complimented by 279 spectacular images, this work examines all seven genera of sticky-leaved insect-eating plants (Byblis, Drosera, Drosophyllum, Ibicella, Pinguicula, Roridula and Triphyophyllum) and documents their wild ecology and natural diversity in full detail and in many cases, for the very first time. The first chapter of Glistening Carnivores focuses on the research of Charles Darwin and the implications of his findings relating to the carnivorous plants of the world. The next chapter, entitled The Sticky-Leaved Insect-Eating Plants, identifies all of the known sticky-leaved insect-eating plants and discusses their classification. The following chapters entitled The Evolution of the Sticky-Leaved Insect-Eating Plantsand Mutualistic Arthropods respectively handle the evolution of the seven genera and the known relationships with arthropod partners involving these plants. Each of the following seven chapters then individually focus on one genus of sticky-leaved insect-eating plants. Each genus is considered in terms of its taxonomy, botanical history, morphology and ecology. In the following chapter, entitled Habitat Loss and the Threat

Interrelationship Between Insects and Plants
Language: en
Pages: 336
Authors: Pierre Jolivet
Categories: Science
Type: BOOK - Published: 1998-05-27 - Publisher: CRC Press
One of the world's most insightful writers on the subject brings together an array of important and readable information on the ways in which insects and plants coexist in nature. Interrelationship Between Insects and Plants is a rare and expansive look at the intertwining of these two vastly different species. Its aim is to summarize in a simple and understandable way the basis of food selection among insects, and to review the various sides of their relationships with plants.
The Carnivorous Plants
Language: en
Pages: 353
Authors: Barrie Edward Juniper, Richard J. Robins, Daniel M. Joel
Categories: Carnivorous plants.
Type: BOOK - Published: 1989 - Publisher:
Plants, as is now becoming widely recognised, exploit animals in almost as many ways as animals use plants; only rarely, however, do they eat animals in the sense of catching, holding, and devouring prey. The manner, however, in which they function as carnivores grants insights into plant form, function, and evolution not otherwise readily available. The diversity of morphological, biochemical, and commensal features generates both the lay and the scientific interest in this diverse group. The carnivorous plants exhibit features which are common to many other non-carnivorous plants. However the extent to which these features have developed and the combination of different features in small organs is unique and therefore, can be exploited by using these plants as models for scientific research.
The Ecology of Temporary Waters
Language: en
Pages: 205
Authors: D. Dudley Williams
Categories: Aquatic ecology
Type: BOOK - Published: 1987-01-01 - Publisher: Taylor & Francis
Temporary fresh waters, whether seasonal rivers, streams, ponds or microhabitats such as a hollowed tree trunk or pitcher plant reservoirs, exhibit amplitudes in both physical and chemical parameters which are much greater than those found in most water bodies. Organisms that live in these types of habitat have, therefore, to be particularly well adapted to these conditions if they are to survive. Survival often depends on exceptional physiological tolerance or effective immigration and emigration abilities. Originally published in 1987, this book is one of the very few available on the subject and should be of great interest to freshwater ecologists and zoologists and botanists concerned with adaptation to extreme environments. "This interesting book describes some of the temporary waterbodies found in many parts of the world, such as rainpools, billabongs, and meltwater streams.... This book fills a gap in the literature and should stimulate further work on these fascinating waterbodies." Rosalind M. Pontin in The Biologist (1988) 35 (3): p. 162. "Here is a book on an unusual topic but one that will certainly prove to be thought-provoking ..... it has a mass of material not easily available to ecologists, limnologists, botanists and zoologists, especially those concerned with plant-animal adaptations....
The Story of the Apple
Language: en
Pages: 219
Authors: Barrie Edward Juniper, D. J. Mabberley
Categories: Gardening
Type: BOOK - Published: 2006 - Publisher: Timber Press (OR)
The Story of the Apple reveals the solution to a long-standing puzzle. Where did the apple come from, and why is the familiar large, sweet, cultivated apple so different from all other wild apple species with their bitter, cherry-sized fruits? This book will fascinate gardeners who wish to know more about the origin and natural history of the plants that they grow in their yards or orchards, researchers and students in botany and horticulture who want the evidence from DNA, geology, anthropology, archaeology, zoology, and Classical history, and anyone with an interest in diet, well-being, and the benevolent effects of plants on the emergence of humankind.
