Dear All

Two recent(ish) mentions of the trade in Drosera spp. :

1. Drosera rotundifolia is mentioned as one of the fifteen species
of concern in TRAFFIC (Trade Record Analysis of Fauna and Flora in
Trade) International's publication 'Europe's Medicinal and Aromatic
Plants - their use, trade and conservation'. It doesn't give
precise details on where to get the report from, but try one of the

2. Medicinal Plant Symposium (22-23 June 1998, RBG Kew, UK) - a
short article on this symposium in the IUCN Medicinal PLant
Specialist Group's (MPSG) newsletter (Vol. 5, March 1999) mentions
that Drosera spp. were the subject of specific talks. This
symposium was organised by TRAFFIC Europe, IUCN/SSC MPSG, WWF and
the Conventions and Policy Section at Kew Gardens. Again, try
TRAFFIC International or RBG Kew, UK for details on this symposium.

Cheers, Mad
