Summary

Carnivorous plants are those plants that depend on insects and small animals for their nitrogen supply and proteins (inorganic nutrition). They derive some or most of their nutrients from trapping and digesting small animals and insects by means of specially modified plant organs or trapping mechanisms. Today, there are over 600 known species of carnivorous plants in the world and most of them are herbaceous perennials that live in nutrient-poor soils.

    Personal Narrative of Travels to the Equinoctial Regions of America, during the years 1799-1804 is a three-volume account of an expedition taken from Spain to South America by naturalists Alexander von Humboldt and Aimé Bonpland. The authors visited Venezuela, Cuba, Andes, Mexico and USA where they collected the material and made extensive notes. Their joint effort to record a memoir of this great expedition is quite interesting and valuable because it contain specific documentation of their scientific observations, but it also presents an intriguing and romantic work with many poetic descriptions of nature and the people who lived in the areas he visited.

    Basic quantum chemistry provides a coherent and structured approach in introducing the concept of 'quantum' to the students of quantum mechanics. An attempt is made to bring out the subtleties of quantum mechanics, hidden in its abstract laws and equations, applicable to the atomic domain by showing its relevance to the observable macroscopic world as well. This is nothing but providing “QUANTUM INSIGHT” into the nature of reality to enable one to think about the universe in a different perspective. The book helps the reader to dispel the stigma associated with quantum mechanics. The emphasis on conceptual approach provides a platform to stand on, and a stimulus to pursue higher quantum mechanics, the doorway to the all-pervasive quantum world.
