Carnivorous Plants of Australia Magnum Opus Volume 1


Author: Allen Lowrie

Australia is home to over one third of all carnivorous plant species currently recognised worldwide. Moreover, the different species found on this continent also represent many of the most diverse carnivorous plant forms known, including some of the largest, most spectacular and unusual representatives of the major carnivorous plant groups. Over the past five decades, renowned botanist Allen Lowrie has travelled across Australia in order to observe, study and photograph all the carnivorous plant species of the continent. This benchmark study represents his accumulated life’s work to date, and offers a definitive and unparalleled examination of all carnivorous plants species currently known from Australia. Carnivorous Plants of Australia Magnum Opus features in-depth, fully illustrated descriptions of all taxa, and introduces for the first time more than 20 new species, 4 new hybrids, and a number of new combinations and new records for Australia. This exhaustive work also includes a wealth of new information and location data, new observations, unique photographs and species distribution maps.
