    Sources for research paper on Nepenthes?

    I'm going to make this quick as I only have a few minutes left in class.

    I am doing a research paper on Nepenthes. It is simply a definition paper so I do not believe I have to go far in depth although I would like to mention how they trap their prey etc.

    Does anyone have any resources that are good for citing.
    There is a page detailing the history of Nepenthes on one CP vendors website, does anyone have the source of where he got that information, I do not want t Cite a retail site but rather an article or a digitalized publication of Linnaeus' work.


    I already know that Nepenthes were named by Linnaeus after an ancient drug described in Homer's "The Oddysey".
    If anyone had any other really good academic sources I could cite I would appreciate it.
    Much of what I know of Nepenthes I feel is general knowledge within the community of more experienced growers, but I am required to cite information.

    Have you tried searching through google scholar? I use it quite often to find different reports.

    Heres a few I found quickly on trapping:

    McPherson's Pitcher Plants of the Old world (volume 1) is a good source.
    Insanity is a sane response to an insane world.
