This is NOT a debate about evolution. *This is a thread to see everyones ideas on what cps evolved from and into. *Species should be used in place of ancestors. *I believe "A World of Pinguicula" did a good job on teh genetic evolution of Pinguicula so not much to ask about there. I do not think many of the books on cps that I have read have given good evolutionary explainations. *Why would Drosera or Pings evolve from Bromiliads for instance.
Here's my example and argument for such:
All species represented will have to be immagined as ancestors.
D. schzandra evolved into a Ping with tall glands (such as P. rectifolia among others) this happened when the change from D. schzandra to other Drosera produced a varient with short glands and lots of glands.
