     Enslow, Springfield, N.J., 1996. ISBN 0894906178, hardcover, USD 16.95.
   Descr.: juvenile literature, 48 pp., ?. Review from The Horn Book, Inc.:
   "Plants that eat animals may seem like freaks of nature, but one of the
   strengths of this book is that it explains how environmental conditions and
   competition for resources may have led these plants to evolve. The text and
   B&W and color photographs highlight the amazing diversity of carnivorous
   plants. Comments on the possibility of plants' devouring humans are
   sensationalized." Includes references, glossary and index.

     Publications (Borneo) Sdn. Bhd., Kota Kinabalu, Sabah, Malaysia, 2002. ISBN 
     9838120618, stapled softcover, RM 20.00.
   Descr.: IV+32 pp. ?. 
   From the publisher's advertisement: This new guide to the pitcher plants (Nepenthes) of
   Peninsular Malaysia discusses the 10 species and several natural hybrids that occur in the
   region. In comparison to the neighbouring islands of Borneo and Sumatra, Peninsular Malaysia
   is not often considered to be a centre of diversity for pitcher plants, but as this book
   serves to illustrate, the species that occur there are as beautiful and spectacular as those
   from anywhere else. The book is divided into several parts, the first one introducing the
   reader to pitcher plants and Peninsular Malaysia in general. This is followed by a section
   that discusses each of the species, and several natural hybrids in greater detail. The final
   part provides information on several notable locations where pitcher plants can be found in
   Peninsular Malaysia. The text is drawn from the author's previous works on Nepenthes from
   Sumatra and Borneo, while the illustrations include a number of images that have not been
   published previously. The book is illustrated throughout with beautiful colour photographs
   and the text is simple and easy to read, avoiding the use of scientific jargon wherever
   possible. It is of interest to nature lovers from Peninsular Malaysia, tourists, naturalists
   and, of course, any student of Nepenthes.
   Review CPN 32(4), 2003, p.112 by Barry Rice: "...overshadowing the text is the photography, 
   which is truly beautiful..."

   The book is presented in a pocket-size format and is divided into two main parts. 
   The first part introduces the reader to pitcher plants in general, while the second discusses

   where, and most importantly when, to look for them. This book is updated

   introduction to carnivorous plants (covering their history in horticulture,
   why they are carnivorous etc.), the book is divided into three parts - Part I
   is on the basics of cultivation, covering soils, pottery, photoperiod, grow
   lights and things like that; Part II reviews where you can grow carnivorous
   plants, such as greenhouses, terrariums, windowsills, outdoors and so on;
   Part III reviews all genera of CP and their specific cultivation requirements
   rather extensively. An appendix covering resources, laws, tissue culture,
   etc. It seems to be a great book for any CPer. Some spelling mistakes, e.g.
   N. bicalcurata instead of N.bicalcarata, U. reinformis for U. reniformis.

   This enjoyable book gave the carnivorous nature of plants scientific
   reputation. This was not a less revolutionary book than the one he
   became famous for, but, as Darwin said, the little plant with sticky
   leaves (D.rotundifolia) was much  dearer than the whole development
   of species for him. So he dedicated a major part of this book to this
   sundew and described many still interesting experiments with which he
   proved carnivorous nature of plants. However, most of the other CP
   genera are discussed, too. Includes references and index. Fun reading,
   a historical value. Highly recommended especially to teachers and other
   people who want to give practical introductions in the field of CP and
   science. Juniper et al. in their books write that Darwin and Lloyd should
   be in a library of every CP botanically founded enthusiast.

  Americas yet undertaken -- it is a substantive overview of the systematics, biology,
  ecology, biogeography, and conservation of the five genera of American pitcher plants.
  Here is information about some 45 species, hybrids, and cultivars, consolidated and 
  presented in detail, along with more than 200 spectacular color photographs. This beautiful 
  and informative study of these alluring plants will be appreciated by a wide audience of

  Descr.: in Japanese, 354 pp., ?. 
  "Mujinamo", as it is known in Japan, Aldrovanda vesiculosa was first discovered in Hanyu 
  City in 1920. Named Japan Natural Monument in 1966, a designation given to rare and 
  precious natural species, its natural habitat was placed under protection from development 
  and destruction. Alas, in 1968, a heavy precipitation that hit the area caused the total 
  annihilation of the plants from the natural habitat. In 1974, one-year environmental study 
  was conducted, elucidating the possible causes of Aldrovanda extinction. In response to this 
  report, Aldrovanda Conservation and Restoration Research Team was formed in 1976 comprising 
  scholars from various academic disciplines. This report, "Aldrovanda and Its Habitat", is 
  the final outcome of their comprehensive and painstaking research from the view point of 
  biology, chemistry and geology conducted conducted during the years 1976-1982 in Hanyu
