Clarke, Charles, Nepenthes of Borneo

Clarke, Charles Nepenthes of Borneo , .

983-812-015-4 [1997, reprinted with minor changes, 2006]. Well illustrated with colour photographs and drawings, large octavo, pp xii, 209, dustwrapper, very good. [Investigates the pitcher plants of Borneo in detail, treating each of the species, their ecology, where and how they grow, and how they survive the threats they face. The pitcher plants of Borneo are much more than a colourful collection of unusual plants. They trap and devour animals and provide homes for others, even making convenient daytime roosting sites for bats. Few plants can boast such a variety of bizarre features, but the Nepenthes, of Borneo donít stop thereóthere are many other facets of their biology that we still know very little about. On top of that, their main home is the steaming tropical forests of Borneo: on the summits of remote mountains, high up in the tops of trees, and even by the sides of roads in the major towns. This book investigates the Nepenthes of Borneo in detail, treating each of the species, their ecology, where and how they grow, and how they survive, and discussing the threats they face. Charles Clarke has been studying these plants for the last ten years, and has travelled to all corners of Borneo to research this book. A number of these plants are illustrated here for the first time, and much of the information presented is new to science. Scientists and lay people with an interest in the natural history of Borneo will find this book essential reading. (Book ref. 002963 )  £ 35.00
