Southern Africa has possibly the most beautiful and diverse floral kingdom in the world, but it is also the most polluted and threatened. Agricultural production is under threat from both indigenous and alien weeds and our entire ecosystem is now being seriously threatened by these alien, invasive species.
Awareness of these weeds, the regulations involved an possible control measures have become critical factors. Things change in time, more weeds appear and the scope of this edition is extended up into more Central Africa.

For centuries, carnivorous plants have fascinated and mystified all who encounter them. From the well-known Dionaea to obscure African Drosera, from the dramatic Sarracenia of the coastal plains of the United States to the microscopic Utricularia of Florida, they are simply remarkable. Quite naturally it is also a special thrill to grow these wonders of nature. Yet even experienced enthusiasts too often find a lovingly tended homegrown plant fading away without capturing a single insect. Help is at hand in this comprehensive guide to identifying, understanding, and successfully cultivating more than 600 species, hybrids, and cultivars from all genera of carnivorous plants. Surprises abound to delight the reader, such as a common weedy mustard that has carnivorous seeds and aquatic spiders that dive into carnivorous plants to steal their captured prey. Trapping mechanisms inspire awe, whether the snap-shut action of Dionaea and Aldrovanda, the slobbery mucus glands of Drosophyllum, or the giant pitchers of Nepenthes that can trap and dissolve rodents.

With over 400 glorious photographs, many never seen before, a broad plant directory, insights from professional carnivorous plant growers and experts, and detailed coverage that is as enjoyable to read as it is practical to use, this is the irresistible resource that hobbyists, gardeners, and naturalists alike have long awaited.

Barry A. Rice is an expert carnivorous horticulturist who has been growing these bizarre plants since 1985 (not counting the Venus flytraps he killed as a child), and has produced many noteworthy carnivorous plant cultivars. He is editor of Carnivorous Plant Newsletter, the publication of the International Carnivorous Plant Society, and is also the society's Director of Conservation Programs.

For anyone with an interest in botany or wondering what a plant name means, this well-written book will be an indispensable guide. The Illustrated Dictionary of Southern African Plant Names is aimed at keen gardeners, plant collectors, amateur and professional botanists, academics, and many other people who wish to have an answer to the question: 'What do generic plant names mean?' Without a reference book to guide you, the generic names are simply unexplained 'names' because they are written in botanical Latin which few people understand. This easy-to-use dictionary enables readers to find out how plants have got their names. It provides a wealth of information that opens up a new world of understanding for all plant lovers. The book has nearly 5 000 entries and will include approximately 400 beautiful full-colour photographs of plants taken by top botanical photographers. This not only gives life to the book but in many cases illustrates how these names relate to the plant. Pictures have been selected from the various regions of southern African and 24 of South Africa's leading botanists contributed to this choice with an opening page (from A-Z). Readers who wish to know more about the lives of those individuals after whom plants were named such as Watsonia, Welwitschia and hundreds more, will be surprised but delighted to find this dictionary contains more than 900 short biographies together with some 600 images, thus conserving southern African botanical history. There are fascinating descriptions of these individuals' contributions to science, their explorations, their achievements and tragedies. The book also provides information for those readers who want to know more about the genus, such as whether the genus is an invasive species or whether the genus name has been superseded and what the replacement name is.
