Field Guide to the Pitcher Plants of Borneo
Field Guide to the Pitcher Plants of the Borneo is a lavishly illustrated overview of the thirty nine species of Bornean pitcher plants (Nepenthes). Several species featured in Field Guide to the Pitcher Plants of Borneo have been discovered extremely recently, and the images included in Field Guide to the Pitcher Plants of Borneo are among the first to be published.
This visually beautiful guide book consists of a short introduction to Nepenthes, followed by an overview of the species known from Borneo (complete with full page map). Each species is then profiled over two pages with the use of three images (most of which have never been published before) and a brief, but detailed text summary written in clear, easy-to-understand English. Concluding sections cover Nepenthes hybrids, conservation of Bornean pitcher plants, Bibliography, Index, and About the Authors.
