The Trap Snaps Shut

Researchers isolate the substance that causes Venus flytraps to close

11-Nov-2010

The Venus flytrap is a carnivorous plant luring insect prey with drops of liquid. The trap snaps shut like a steel jaw when an insect touches one of the very fine hairs within. The prey is caught – digestion begins. Minoru Ueda and a research team from the Universities of Tohoku, Hirosaki, and ...
