Insectivorous plants exercise a curious fascination; their ability to capture living creatures is so alien to anything we expect of a plant. In this classic study, first published in 1875, the author of The Origin of Species explains, by means of detailed observation and experiments, how these curious organisms trap and digest their prey, and absorb nutrients from them. His findings will surprise today’s readers as much as they did the Victorians.
