AIPC's SPECIAL ISSUES
CDrom "The Drosera petiolaris complex"A monograph by Maurizio Saroldi
Dear CP lovers,
every year, AIPC (the Italian CP Society) offers to its members 4 issues of its magazine, dedicated to several topics on the wonderful world of carnivorous plants.
In 2007 we begun an experiment devoting an entire issue to one single topic and so, in November 2007, the first monograph came to light: “The Drosera petiolaris complex” by Maurizio Saroldi, a double issue comprising 64 pages. The foreign growers who received this work voiced their appreciation, but also their regret at not being able to read the text, which of course, was in Italian.
For this reason we have now prepared a CD containing a pdf English version of the monograph.
CDrom "A tour of the Venezuelan Gran Sabana and some of its Tepuis"A monograph by Andy Smith
Special Issue 2: this number is completely devoted to a field trip that our friend Andy Smith has written just for our journal, where it was published slightly reduced and that is offered here in full version, enriched by many more photos.
So a big thank to Andy Smith and his infectious enthusiasm.

Cerbaie’s project: Drosera rotundifolia var. corsica preservation
In the heart of the Tuscany, close to the Cerbaie’s Hills, in a tiny area, it’s possible to find the Drosera rotundifolia L. var. corsica Maire. The “sfagnum-bog” of the little San Martino’s valley (Fucecchio – FI) is one of the few sites in the world where is possible to find this particular plant and surely it is the southernmost Italian site where Drosera rotundifolia grows. The “sphagnum-bog” is large 1,000 sq. mtrs and additionally has some esteemed species, like Osmunda regalis L. and, until few years ago, the nice Gentiana pneumonanthe L., probably extinct due to phytosanitary measures and to many fires in this zone.
AIPC, in close cooperation with the probate authorities and the landlord, is working in order to promote the preservation project for this very important natural biotope, participating in the activities structures, management and info campaign, aimed at the Drosera’s survival; this plants, indeed, is currently at very high risk of extinction because of the site peculiarity and the lack of effective protection from the danger elements (infesting plants, shading, indiscriminate plants-collection, etc.). The project includes the re-establishment of the original habitat, limiting the competition of other infesting plants. The area will be fenced and several footbridges will be built as well as some guide-boards will help even the less expert excursionist to understand the peculiar area.
