Sarraceniaceae of North America 1This work is part of an exquisitely beautiful and uniquely detailed two volume monograph that provides the first complete study of the full diversity, ecology and taxonomy of all recognised species of the three genera of Sarraceniaceae (Darlingtonia, Heliamphora and Sarracenia).

Sarraceniaceae of North America examines all species of Darlingtonia and Sarracenia from the United States and Canada, including eighteen new Sarracenia varieties and forms, one incompletely diagnosed Sarracenia taxon, and one new form Darlintonia.

Complete with up-to-date conservation assessments, distribution maps and accounts of the diversity, wild ecology and habitats of all species, this monograph is a major and definitive taxonomic revision of all three genera of true pitcher plants of the New World.

Visually beautiful and comprehensive, these books will appeal to both general readers and specialists who are interested in the natural history, diversity, ecology and relationships of Darlingtonia, Heliamphora and Sarracenia.
