In the 25 years since the publication of the original works, Allen Lowrie has continued to undertake intensive field observations and has discovered many more new Australian carnivorous plants. He has carefully revised, updated and improved his original books and his life's work is now complete and released as Carnivorous Plants of Australia Magnum Opus, Volumes one, two and three. This incredible benchmark study offers a definitive, unparalleled and up-to-date examination of all carnivorous plants currently recognised from the continent of Australia (8 Byblis species; 1 Aldrovanda; 1 Cephalotus; 3 Polypompholx; 3 Nepenthes; 160 Drosera and 60 Utricularia). This work includes twenty three new species, four new hybrids, eleven recombined taxa, two new records for Australia, and eight taxa that have been recalled from synonymy. It also includes a wealth of new information and location data, new observations, unique photographs and new maps that update the original works. Volume two see [35886] and volume three [35887].

Volume one covers types and habitats of carnivorous plants, groups of Australian Drosera, keys, and species accounts for Cephalotos and Drosera A to F. Volume two covers species accounts for Drosera G to Z and volume three covers Nephenthes and biographies of botanists.
