Sinister Beauty of Carnivorous Plants

by Matthew M Kaelin,

Condition: New


Schiffer Publishing, May 2016. Hardcover. New. The alluring nature of carnivorous plants is on stunning display in this fine art-style collection of botanical photographs. Over 140 color images show in minute detail species, hybrids, and cultivars from around the world, many painstakingly cultivated by the author in his native New York. The images were taken in a studio setting as well as in their natural environment. Detailed captions and text contain horticultural information like genus, specie, and common names, ranges, and conservation status. Additional sections offer a primer on equipment and conditions for growing the specimens; identify threats to the plants' natural habitats and the conservation organizations that are working to protect them; and present a survey of Long Island's native carnivorous plants, making this a valuable horticultural reference as well. This book will appeal to both fine art photography aficionados and horticultural enthusiasts.
