About this book

Plants exploit animals in many ways, but very few actually `prey' on animals as carnivores. This is the first major review of this fascinating phenomenon, which led John Wyndham to write his famous novel Day of the Triffids. Juniper et al explore the unique morphological, biochemical and commensal features of carnivorous plants, and their development.
