This beginner's field guide introduces the little-documented world of parasitic and carnivorous plants, a category of flora that is often overlooked. This volume explains how these unusual plants grow and reproduce, and why they are dependent on other species in order to flourish. It also outlines the methods of entry by parasitic plants into their host plants, and describes the most spectacular and successful carnivorous plant varieties around the world. A distribution map and photograph accompany each species.
