This book presents the most extensive general review of the pitcher plants of the Americas yet undertaken -- it is a substantive overview of the systematics, biology, ecology, biogeography, and conservation of the five genera of American pitcher plants (s.l.), including three genera of true pitcher plants (Darlingtonia, Heliamphora, and Sarracenia) and two genera of carnivorous tank bromeliads (Brocchinia, Catopsis). Here is information about some 45 species, hybrids, and cultivars, consolidated and presented in detail, along with more than 200 spectacular color photographs. This beautiful and informative study of these alluring plants will be appreciated by a wide audience of naturalists, botanists, ecologists, biogeographers, resource managers, and horticulturalists -- among others!
