Learn About:

  • the diversity of carnivorous plants,
  • why scientists care about them enough to spend valuable grant funds (and your tax dollars) on learning about them, and
  • how to protect and conserve these unique plants at home and around the world.

Harvard Forest researcher Aaron Ellison has been studying carnivorous plants and the insects they eat for 15 years. There are hundreds of species of these fascinating plants throughout the world, and at least 10 species of carnivorous plants can be found here in the North Quabbin.
