Description
 
Meat-eating plants? Yes! Some of them drown their prey in sticky liquid. Others trap insects and digest them. Find out more about plants that bite—and fight—back.
In the book Plants That Bite Back, chapter one looks at hoe different types of plants protect themselves from being eaten by animals, and how they get the food they need to survive.
Chapter two explains how acacia trees protect themselves from being eaten by releasing a poison into their leaves.
Chapter three looks at how tomato plants send out an odour to attract wasps when caterpillars are eating them. The wasps in turn, attack the caterpillar and protect the tomato plant from further attack.
