The Carnivorous Plant FAQ Field Trip Report -

North and South Carolina low country, 2007

Return to the Trip Overview

The previous plants grew in moist Sphagnum and had been spared the effects of a recent wildfire. Meanwhile, the plants above were not so protected, and had been slightly toasted. Still, they were already responding with vigorous regrowth.

Jim had been studying these plants to better understand their population dynamics--research that could be used to help in restoration efforts. Unfortunately, some idiot poachers had dug plants from the site, damaging his research results. Yet another example of an impact by poachers.

Here is an image of the same plants from a slightly different angle.
