The majority of carnivorous plant species in Brazil are found in campo rupestre vegetation, mostly along the Cadeia do Espinhaço highlands of Minas Gerais and Bahia states, as well as in savanna areas of central Brazil. Another habitat that is rich in carnivorous plant species is found along coastal areas and is known as restingas (Rivadavia 2002), which occur all along the c. 8500 km of coastal Brazil.
