In this chapter, we review the key conservation issues concerning carnivorous plants, focusing on two geographical regions—the USA and southwest Australia—and one widespread genus(Nepenthes), as these are the only groups currently amenable to analysis. Southwest Australia hosts the highest number of carnivorous plant species in the world, whereas Nepenthes is the largest genus of pitcher plants and includes the highest proportion of threatened taxa. Although the carnivorous flora of North America comprises relatively few species, it contains an unusually high number of iconic taxa. These three groups are taxonomically, geographically, and ecologically disparate and our approach to discussing them varies accordingly.
