Caption

California pitcher plant (Darlingtonia californica). This is a carnivorous plant, using scent, nectar and colour to attract insects to its traps. The trapped insects are then digested by enzymes secreted by the plant. This provides the plant with nutrients, such as phosphorous and nitrogen. Pitcher plants are typically found in nutrient-poor habitats, such as swamps. Artwork from the ninth volume (first period of 1892) of the French popular science weekly 'La Science Illustree'.
