Sarraceniaceae of South 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 South America examines all species ofHeliamphora from the Guiana Highlands of Venezuela, Brazil and Guyana, including five new Heliamphora species along with three incompletely diagnosed Heliamphora taxa that have not been documented previously.

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 anddefinitive taxonomic revision of all three genera of true pitcher plants of the New World.
