From fly-trapping to fly-tipping Online event
Carnivorous plants get a portion of their energy needs by consuming animals. For this reason, they have held a gruesome fascination for us as their habits are so unexpected of plants. The ways they capture and consume their prey are marvels of evolution that enable them to survive in extreme environments. This event will take a practical look at some familiar examples and will explore new research that shows fly trapping is not always the whole story.
