Evolution of wood anatomical characters in Nepenthes and close relatives of Caryophyllales
The wood anatomical variation in Nepenthes displays variation for some characters dependent on soil type, precipitation and stem length, but is largely conservative.
Antimicrobial Activity of Necklace Orchids is Phylogenetically Clustered and can be Predicted With a Biological Response Method
Comparative bioprospecting for a group of wild orchids using EBDCS organ targeted and biological response methods found the biological response classification method is a more effective tool in finding hot nodes amongst clades of species with high medicinal potential.

The tradition of cooking glutinous rice snacks in pitcher plants, or peruik kera in Malay, likely carries from a time when cooking vessels were more limited, and persists only faintly in tribal culture today because of value placed on maintaining cultural heritage.
Ontogeny and Anatomy of the Dimorphic Pitchers of Nepenthes rafflesiana Jack
Investigation of the anatomy and development of lower and upper type pitchers of N. rafflesiana found that there is an overlap in the initial, but not all, developmental stages of the two pitcher types and that one pitcher type is suspended in development.
A Linnaeus NG interactive key to the species of Glomera (Orchidaceae, Coelogyninae) from Southeast Asia
Anyone with an interest in wild orchids in Southeast Asia to contribute new observations to update current information on the distribution of these overlooked plants as a first step for a taxonomic revision and to gain more insight into their conservation status is urged.

This work has found that aqueous fractions of several latexes were found to possess simple spectra, even with only 1 metabolite, that might be involved in the modulation of the rate of latex coagulation, potentially increasing the sealing and trapping effects of the latex.
