  1. New in Guinness World Records 2021 The catapult flypaper trap Drosera glanduligera has now been included in the Guinness World Records 2021 as the fastest terrestrial predatory plant. It is actually faster than the VFT. Together with Dr. Simon Poppinga and the team of the Plant Biomechanics Group of the University of Freiburg, Irmgard and I are very happy about this great success of our common research work on the "Diva" (catapult-flypaper trap published 2012 in Plos One). Simon and the participating authors are additionally pleased, because based on the results of their experi
  2. The catapults of the sundew Drosera glanduligera fling passing prey animals in a sensational manner onto the sticky trapping leaves. Already in 2012, we measured and published this enormous - 75 ms - speed for a capture event, in the labs of the Plant Biomechanics Group of the University Freiburg (Germany). In this film, we show again by measurements with Dr. Simon Poppinga at the labs of the bionics specialists in Freiburg, what an amazing force these catapults possess. A single catapult has an average weight of 0.15 mg. The rapidly flung fruit flies in our former experiments weigh 1.74
  3. Enjoy the amazing prey capture of a catapulting sundew. Short and succinctly (75 ms) but sensational. Meanwhile, we provide more than 120 thrilling videos on carnivorous plants on our (private and uncommercial) YouTube channel. Simply subscribe to stay up to date.
  4. Amazing results: Pygmy sundews capture minute prey like springtails with rapid catapult action. Our experiments for this film (English subtitles) show that Drosera glanduligera is not longer the only sundew with a catapult-flypaper trapping mechanism. Also the snap-tentacles of several pygmy Drosera act with the speed of a closing Venus flytrap and fling walking prey from the periphery of the plant onto its sticky leaf. Therefore they turn out to be actually comparable with the amazing Drosera glanduligera, however, their catapults are multifunctional and possess a mechanism to avoid unessenti
  5. Feed me ! F├╝ttere mich ! The catapult-flypaper trap on German TV in September at "planet wissen". A short trailer to announce the broadcast: A sundew is kicking a fruit fly with one of its catapulting tentacles and makes it stumble into the catapult-trap of a neighbour plant. A mighty fine draft for this filmlet. The scientific publication of the catapult-flypaper trap in 2012 in PLOS ONE has been a botanical sensation. Also the technology writer Volker Arzt became aware of it and recommended our (until now unique) HD-shots to the editorial staff of the scientific broadcast "planet wissen". Th
  6. The world-wide feedback on the PLOS ONE publication of the catapult-flypaper-trap (2012 September 26) exceeds all expectations. Its 75 ms motion beats even the Venus Flytrap. Until today the story has been reported by more than 100 (Dec. 4) international, mainly scientific websites including National Geographic, Science and Smithsonian Magazine. Le Figaro in France added even a soundtrack and a French translation to our video short-cut, published with the article (open access licence, therefore everybody may use that version on his website if the publication and authors are cited). The Greek M
  7. This short film features the prey-catching by the catapult-flypaper-trap of Drosera glanduligera. Simon Poppinga from the Plant Biomechanics Group of the Botanic Garden of the University Freiburg (Head Prof. Dr. Thomas Speck) operated the high-speed camera and the scanning electron microscope. The HD-shots were made by Irmgard and myself on our living-room table, using our Sony Z5 camera. This digest shows explicitly the prey-catching of the catapult-flypaper-trap and was new edited for those, who like to see just the basal principles, and not the complete documentation on our examinations. Ou
  8. We are happy to introduce the catapult-flypaper-trap in PLOS ONE and on YouTube: http://dx.plos.org/1...al.pone.0045735 ... and I was not quite sure in which topic I should post this: "Sundews" or "Spring traps" ;-)). We show the first experimental evidence for the role of catapulting tentacles in prey capture of a carnivorous plant and introduce a new active trapping mechanism: The catapult-flypaper-trap. This video documents our (Irmgard and Siegfried R. H. Hartmeyer) collaboration with the Plant Biomechanics Group of the Botanic Garden of the Albert-Ludwigs-University Freiburg (Germany)
