New Carniverous Species


New Carniverous Species


A recent discovery was a carnivorous bromeliad (brocchinia reducta). All bromeliads hold water in the 'tanks' separating their leaves. However, one bromeliad is evolving to become carnivorous. It's leaves are coated with wax, so prey slips off leaves into the water. Like the pitcher plant, it released a chemical to remove surface tension and has discovered to produce at least one digestive enzyme. There are other plants that have exhibited behaviors seen to be carnivorous and we may be seeing new CPs be born.
