Well illustrated, large slim 8vo, pp 32, paperback, a very good copy. Postage will be much reduced. [Illustrates and describes the 16 species of this region. This new guide to the pitcher plants (Nepenthes) of Peninsular Malaysia discusses the 10 species and several natural hybrids that occur in the region. In comparison to the neighbouring islands of Borneo and Sumatra, Peninsular Malaysia is not often considered to be a centre of diversity for pitcher plants, but as this book serves to illustrate, the species that occur there are as beautiful and spectacular as those from anywhere else. The book is divided into several parts, the first one introducing the reader to pitcher plants and Peninsular Malaysia in general. This is followed by a section that discusses each of the species, and several natural hybrids in greater detail. The final part provides information on several notable locations where pitcher plants can be found in Peninsular Malaysia. The text is drawn from the author’s previous works on Nepenthes from Sumatra and Borneo, while the illustrations include a number of images that have not been published previously.] The book is illustrated throughout with beautiful colour photographs and the text is simple and easy to read, avoiding the use of scientific jargon wherever possible. It is of interest to nature lovers from Peninsular Malaysia, tourists, naturalists and, of course, any student of Nepenthes.]
