Did someone check out this book?
Henry Mann , Michael Burzynski: "Flesh - Eating Plants of Newfoundland & Labrador and the Maritime Provinces"
Barry Rice wrote a review in the latest CPN about it, but it not easy to find this book online.

Just got this in the mail, so I haven't had time to sit down and read all the text, but what I've looked at seems (like Barry Rice said) very comprehensive. It was a little expensive from the link above (shipping was 20 bucks so it came out to 50 all in) but I think it could be a worthy addition for those who are interested in wild carnivorous plants. I was mostly interested in the section on Utricularia, as my ID knowledge for them is lacking, and it is as Rice described, extremely thorough, it takes up a whole 70 pages of the book's 180 or so pages.

It was good, the photographic sections are really thorough for all the species involved, especially for the Utrics. It is well written for the most part, and I found the text engaging even if it was about subjects I was already familiar with. I do think this book's big strength is simply being a collection of images of Canadian-native CPs, and it certainly excels in that regard. Only weakness for me was the range maps for areas outside of the Maritimes, which just indicate if a species occurs in a given province, but doesn't give more in depth distribution info.
