Hi all,
Mid Atlantic Carnivorous Plant Society forwarded this video today and I thought others would be interested. It's about 30 minutes and focuses on a researcher in Germany who studies why and how plants evolved to be carnivorous - fascinating stuff! The voice over is a little stilted since it's translated, but still worth a watch.
