Carnivorous and Parasitic Plants

Explore the weird world of native plants that employ nontraditional nourishment strategies, from catching and devouring their own prey to stealing from neighbors. With classroom discussion and field application, this program examines the evolution and motivations of carnivory as an adaptation, distinguishing characteristics across and within carnivorous and parasitic families, and explaining the role of parasitic plants in their environments.
