Impressed by the beauty and elegance of the pitcher plants of the family Nepenthaceae, the author and his wife made annual trips for 12 years to Sabah and Sarawak to study and photograph the numerous endemic pitcher plants in their natural, often remote, habitats. In this book the pitchers (and plants) of all Nepenthes species of Sabah and Sarawak, and some endemic Kalimantan species, are illustrated. Their particularities, including many natural hybrids, are described. The threats to these wonderful tropical plants as well as possible ways of ensuring their survival in their original habitat are also discussed.
