Floral herbivory in the carnivorous plant, Sarracenia alata

Losses of floral tissues to herbivory (florivory) can affect plant reproduction, population growth and structure, and community dynamics. Because carnivorous plants inhabit nutrient-poor environments

A Chemometry of Aldrovanda vesiculosa L. (Waterwheel, Droseraceae) Populations

Using chemometric data as markers for genetic diversity, the relationships of 16 A. vesiculosa populations from various sites, including four continents are shown, which suggests a tendency toward isolation for the most distant populations.

A new species of Utricularia Sect. Orchidioides (Lentibulariaceae) from the Amotape-Huancabamba Zone of North Peru

This new spectacular species of Utricularia is preliminarily considered Critically Endangered (CR), endemic to Northern Peru and likely affected by anthropic pressure.

Identification and documentation of wild plant species with ornamental potentials at Mount Prau, Central Java, Indonesia

Indonesia has diverse flora and fauna, and many species remain largely undiscovered. Documentation and identification of threatened wild ornamental species are increasingly difficult due to ongoing


A study was carried out to investigate the species richness of Nepenthes in the BRIS ecosystem at Kampung Rhu Tapai, Setiu, Terengganu, and their relationship with soil parameters. Selective sampling

Flora of Espírito Santo: Droseraceae

Abstract We present a taxonomic treatment of the species of Droseraceae in Espírito Santo state, Brazil. Droseraceae is represented in the state by two species: Drosera intermedia, found in

Effect of soilless media on small-scale propagation of Pinguicula gigantea

Because of their large size, colorful flowers, and insectivorous habit, butterworts (genus Pinguicula) are desirable ornamental plants among hobbyists and botanical conservatories. Propagation via

Flora of Espírito Santo, Brazil Flora of Espírito Santo: Droseraceae Ferreira

Droseraceae is represented in Espírito Santo state, Brazil by two species: Drosera intermedia, found in marshlands in the restingas (pioneer formations), andDrosera latifolia, which occurs in the campos de altitude (ecological refuges) and on granitic inselbergs in areas of ombrophilous forest in the mountainous region of Espíido Santo.

Prey composition and correlation between morphometry and prey biomass weight of the endemic Nepenthes bicalcarata in Kalimantan, Indonesia

A review of the conservation threats to carnivorous plants

Population ecology of the endangered aquatic carnivorous macrophyte Aldrovanda vesiculosa at a naturalised site in North America

The population ecology of A. vesiculosa at one of these naturalised sites is examined, and the species' potential invasiveness in terms of its ecological characteristics is assessed, suggesting that it poses a low invasion risk.

Insect Declines in the Anthropocene.

Because the geographic extent and magnitude of insect declines are largely unknown, there is an urgent need for monitoring efforts, especially across ecological gradients, which will help to identify important causal factors in declines.

Terrestrial orchid conservation in the age of extinction.

In response to threats to orchid species, integrated conservation approaches have been adopted (including ex situ and translocation principles) in the South West Australian Floristic Region with the result that a significant, multidisciplinary approach is under development to facilitate conservation of some of the most threatened taxa.

A Carnivorous Plant Fed by Its Ant Symbiont: A Unique Multi-Faceted Nutritional Mutualism

The carnivorous plant Nepenthes bicalcarata grows in the Bornean peatswamp forests and is believed to have a mutualistic relationship with its symbiotic ant Camponotus schmitzi, which contributes crucially to the nutrition of N. bical carata via protection of assimilatory organs, enhancement of prey capture, and myrmecotrophy.

Plant Reintroduction in a Changing Climate: Promises and Perils

F ecological restorationists, it is axiomatic that biodiversity is a key foundation upon which ecosystem functioning depends. We accept that loss of diversity can have catastrophic effects on

The Functions of Biological Diversity in an Age of Extinction

Recent advances in the young and evolving field of biodiversity and ecosystem functioning are reviewed, the extent to which the field is becoming a predictive science is explored, and how the field needs to develop in order to aid worldwide efforts to achieve environmental sustainability in the face of rising rates of extinction is explored.
