Summary

The aim of this paper is to present basic anatomical structure of roots of three terrestrial carnivorous plant species, Dionaea muscipula, Drosera adelae, and Sarracenia rubra, and to discuss whether the anatomical structure of their roots is related rather to carnivory or to an adaptation to soil anoxia.

Keywords: physiology: Dionaea muscipula, Drosera adelae, roots, Sarracenia rubra
