About this book

Field Guide to the Pitcher Plants of Sumatra and Java offers a beautifully illustrated overview of the thirty seven species of Sumatran and Javan pitcher plants (Nepenthes). Field Guide to the Pitcher Plants of Sumatra and Java features many species that have been discovered or rediscovered recently, and the images included in Field Guide to the Pitcher Plants of Sumatra and Java are among the first to be published.

This finely presented field guide includes a short introduction to Nepenthes, followed by an overview of the species known from Sumatra and Java (see contents tab). Each species is profiled over two pages with three representative images, most of which have never been published before, and a concise summary of key features written in accessible English. Concluding sections cover Nepenthes hybrids, conservation of Sumatran and Javan pitcher plants, Bibliography, Index and About the Authors.
