Three weeks Western Australia – A travel Report

In 2019 I had the chance to travel for three weeks, together with some friends, through the south west of Western Australia. Our goal was to see the local carnivorous plants. In this lecture i will present what we found as well as give some information about the logistics that comes with such a trip.

Andreas Fleischmann

Sundew times – what’s new in the world of Drosera?

The genus Drosera (sundews, Droseraceae) is the largest genus of carnivorous plants, comprising more than 260 currently known species. Many of them have been just newly discovered and described in the past
20 years, and more than a dozen undescribed species are soon awaiting their formal description new to science.

Also, the genus’ classification and systematics have undergone some recent changes in the light of phylogenetics and evolutionary reconstructions. This lecture will provide some insights to the recent changes in the world of sundews, and illustrates the diversity and systematics of Drosera, including some new aspects on the biology (prey attraction, pollination biology and associated mutualists) of this fascinating group of plants.”

Francois Mey

Exploring the pitcher plants of Sumatra

The island of Sumatra boasts one the greatest number of Nepenthes species, along with Borneo and the Philippines archipelago. Although some species such as N. aristolochioides or N. inermis have become flagships for the genus, others remain poorly known and understood.

In this lecture, François Sockhom Mey, who studies Nepenthes and carnivorous plants since 2004 will discuss the diversity of the Sumatran taxa and give a report on a three-weeks field trip he undertook in Sumatra on April 2019.

Laurens Eggen
