Darwin's work on the carnivorous plants, from 1875, is a remarkable account, not only of the plants themselves, but also of Darwin's exhaustive series of experiments into their physiology, stimuli and reactions. Colin Clayton of Triffid Park finds this CD-Rom facsimile with fully searchable text and hyperlinks one of the easiest research tools that he has used, and highly recommends it.
