Irwan Lovadi studied four species of Australian tropical Drosera. His study found that Drosera with a higher ability to catch prey by means of sticky traps exhibited a significant biomass of captured prey and a higher nitrogen (N) uptake. The findings expand knowledge on variations in N uptake among Drosera.
