Pitcher plants include the largest and most spectacular of all carnivorous plants. So-called because they produce highly specialised foliage that takes the form of hollow.

Pitcher Plants of the Old World is a two-volume monograph by Stewart McPherson on the pitcher plants of the genera Nepenthes and Cephalotus. It was published in May 2009 by Redfern Natural History Productions and covers all species known at the time. The monograph was followed in 2011 by New Nepenthes: Volume One, a supplementary work covering the many Nepenthes taxa documented in the preceding few years.

Stewart McPherson, Alastair Robinson, Andreas Fleischmann. Pitcher plants include the largest and most spectacular of all carnivorous plants. So-called because they produce highly specialised foliage that takes the form of hollow, water-filled "pitchers", these extraordinary plants lure and prey upon arthropods and other small animals. The pitcher plants of the Old World also trap the largest prey of all carnivorous plants, including on rare occasions, vertebrates as large as frogs, mice and even rats.

I was afraid this book would be full of boring academic statistics. I have been pleasantly surprised, after reading 250 pages, that the book is an enjoyable informative read. It provides lots and lots info on Nepenthes and Cephalotus in an enjoyable way. I already have volume two and probably will get "The New Nepenthes" by the same author Stewart McPherson soon.

This first volume goes into great detail about old world pitcher plants. It gives you the information you need about the plants workings trap systems and how to identify the differences in the species.

Most excellent book I would highly recommend if you are into nepenthes plants. Needless to say you will definitely want to get volume 2 to finish out this particular series.
