Well illustrated, small 8vo, pp 81, paperback, a very good copy. [Illustrates and describes all 25 naturally occurring species in Sarawak, and one hybrid. Sarawak is home to more species of Nepenthes than any other political region in the world, and this new book serves as an excellent field guide to all 25 species. A number of Sarawak’s most interesting Nepenthes have only been discovered in recent years, making this guide the first (and only) publication to showcase all of these magnificent and unusual plants. The book is presented in an convenient pocket-size format and is divided into two main parts. The first part introduces the reader to pitcher plants in general, while the second discusses each of the species (plus several natural hybrids) in detail. Between them, the authors have unparalleled field-based experience with Nepenthes, and Ch’ien Lee’s beautiful photographs make this publication one of the most attractive and useful guides ever to be published on Nepenthes. The text is written in plain english and is designed to appeal to both amateur enthusiasts and specialists in the genus. A must for anyone who intends to visit the mountains of Sarawak!].
