Status and management of Florida's carnivorous plant communities
From the text...'Various human activities affect pitcher plant habitats and, in this report, I discuss drainage alteration, forestry techniques, fire suppression, prescribe burning and cattle grazing....In this report I will summarize information regarding the general biology and mangement of habitats containing these carnivorous plants. I have five primary goals: 1) to review the available natural history information of this unique group of plants, 2) to outline methods for measuring the stature and condition of individuals as well as populations of pitcher plants, 3) to determine how these species respond to a range of manipulations, especially those resulting from human disturbance, 4) to ascertain past and present extent of pitcher plant communities in Florida and 5) to summarize conservation concerns plus management recommendations for carnivorous plant habitats.'
