Pitcher Plants: Evolved or Designed

Carnivorous plants have fascinated humanity for centuries. Even Charles Darwin (Darwin, 1875) took time from reshaping the scientific landscape to write about these bizarre plants. Pitcher plants are one of the more well-known variants of carnivorous plants. They come in a variety of sizes, styles, and colors, and are somewhat popular as ornamental plants. According to current research, they have a very interesting evolutionary history as well.
