Carnivorous Plants: New Horizons in Hungry Foliage

Prey Preference in Aquatic Bladderworts (Utricularia spp.) Tracked Over Several Months At Widely Separated Sites.

As part of an ongoing study of prey preference in bladderworts sited over a wide geographic area of North America, we have added a component looking for changes in prey preference over a series of months.These months in the Spring and Summer cover times when the prey community for these plants is changing dynamically, and thus when prey preference for these species is most likely to be observed to vary if it does so. Prey preference is the selection of particular prey from the available spectrum of possible preyorganisms present in the water with aquatic bladderworts. Prey preference canbe measured by comparing the relative abundance of different prey in the overall spectrum with the relative abundance in bladderworts' traps.
