Carnivorous Plant Newsletter Archive

The Carnivorous Plant Newsletter (CPN, ISSN 0190-9215) is the official publication of the International Carnivorous Plant Society (ICPS). CPN is a color, quarterly journal that explores all things related to carnivorous plants.

CPN is a hybrid journal. It has both popular and peer reviewed scientific articles. The ICPS makes all scientific and taxonomic articles and cultivar descriptions open access from the issue date. All other articles are available only to members for six months after the issue date.

Active members of the ICPS receive printed copies of CPN. Members may also purchase available printed back issues, order a DVD with PDFs of past issues, or download PDFs of all issues from the ICPS ClubExpress website. Everyone may view PDFs of all publicly available articles at this website.

Carnivorous Plant Newsletter is also archived at the Biodiversity Heritage Library.

If you need a copy of an embargoed article for scholarly purposes, please contact us using our membership website,

More information about CPN is available on the main ICPS Website.
