About This Project

Darwin observed that carnivory allows plants to capture insects, absorb nutrients through their leaves, and compensate for their reduced root systems, which would otherwise prevent survival in nutrient-poor soils. Drosophyllum lusitanicum (dewy pine) is a rare exception to the general rule that carnivorous plants have reduced roots and are restricted to wet soils. I want to understand why and if this species will persist in the face of a hotter, drier climate.
