New Genlisea Monograph by Andreas Fleischmann

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,

Yesterday I received my copy of the new Genlisea monograph by Andreas Fleischmann - I am ecstatic! There's tons of great info on Genlisea history, ecology, taxonomy, prey, trapping mechanism, distribution, phylogeny & evolution that I'm having trouble putting it down. Oh, and full of great pics too!

The genus now has 29 known species plus one variety, including a few "resuscitated" species: G.pulchella, G.oxycentron, and G.nigrocaulis. In fact the biggest feat of the book, in my opinion, was the monumental effort that Andreas put into correctly identifying and in delimiting each of the yellow species, involving hundreds of herbarium specimens as well as a deep historical research of the literature.

I highly recommend this book! Take a look here: http://www.redfernna..._genus_genlisea

Best wishes,

Fernando Rivadavia
