Article
Full-text available
Prey spectra (the number and composition of captured arthropods) represent a crucial aspect of carnivorous plant ecology, yet remain poorly studied. Traditional morphology-based approaches for prey identification are time-intensive, require specialists with considerable knowledge of arthropod taxonomy, and are hampered by high numbers of unidentifi...
Article
Drosera allantostigma (N.G.Marchant & Lowrie) Lowrie & Conran is illustrated and described. The species is a tiny herbaceous carnivorous plant native to a single roadside location in Western Australia, from which it has not been observed in almost a decade. Weed encroachment, agricultural runoff and altered hydrology continue to affect the location...

A new annual species of Drosera section Arachnopus, Drosera margaritacea, from the western Kimberley region (Western Australia) is described and illustrated, including detailed comparisons with the morphologically most similar species, D. finlaysoniana. The latter name is lectotypified here. The global range of D. finlaysoniana is provided, includi...

Carnivorous plants (CPs)—those possessing specific strategies to attract, capture and kill animal prey and obtain nutrition through the absorption of their biomass—are harbingers of anthropogenic degradation and destruction of ecosystems. CPs exhibit highly specialised and often very sensitive ecologies, being generally restricted to nutrient-impov...
Article
Full-text available
Even though carnivorous plants (CPs) are a popular focus of ecological research, surprisingly few studies have investigated their prey spectra (the number and composition of captured prey). This knowledge gap has important implications for our understanding of sympatric speciation processes in CPs and may potentially hinder effective conservation a...

The pygmy sundews (Drosera section Bryastrum) are the second-largest group of Australian Drosera in terms of species number following the tuberous sundews. According to the latest revisions (Fleischmann et al. 2018; Robinson et al. 2018) they currently comprise 51 species in southwest Western Australia and six named natural hybrids (Lowrie 2014; Lo...
