The Carnivorous Plant FAQ v. 11.5

The International Carnivorous Plant Society

FAQ Citation List

The FAQ started around 1993 as a way of providing information to casual pilgrims of carnivorous plant knowledge, and especially for newbie subscribers to the CP Listerve. In its first few versions, the FAQ was so small it was a single web page! With each new version, the FAQ grew, until it became the great, slobbering beast it is today with more than 700 pages.

In its original incarnations, the FAQ was not designed to be a formal document. However, I have always wanted it to be as scientifically robust as possible. So for your use and further research I provide references at the bottom of each FAQ entry.

Three types of references are used in the FAQ that may look a little different from the normal author citations. They are as follows:

Personal observation: Something I have picked up over the years.
Reader contribution: From a FAQ reader, usually identified by first name, last initial.
Other sources: Sources I cannot recall, but believe are sound. (Sloppy and rare!)
