English Index (1-16): Lectures from the ICPS World Conference in Tokyo 2002
In 2002 the International Carnivorous Plant World Conference took place at the National Science Museum in Tokyo, Japan, providing excellent lectures on carnivorous plants (CP) by numerous famous CP-experts. Also Irmgard and Siegfried R.H. Hartmeyer have been invited for a lecture on the discovery of Drosera hartmeyerorum. As an added surprise Prof. Dr. Katsuhiko Kondo (left picture), chairman of the Japanese Organization Commitee, asked us at the beginning of the conference to produce the official video report on the event, including all rights for publication on DVD and on the Internet. We agreed without hesitation and are now able to upload several excerpts of that very successful event also to YouTube.
This new HD introduction to our documentary on the ICPS World Conference 2002 in Tokyo includes direct links to all featured lectures. Numerous prominent researchers on the wide field of carnivorous plants met here and fascinated the visitors with their talks. No matter if you are interessted in exciting field trips, the phylogeny of Droseraceae or genetic aspects, you will certainly find a fitting lecture.

provides excerpts from the lectures "Chromosome studies in Drosera (Droseraceae)" by Prof. Dr. Yoshikazu Hoshi (Japan), "Population structure of Nepenthes species from Weston, Sipitang in Sabah" by Dr. Jummat Adam (Malaysia), and "Nepenthes in Malaysia" by Prof. Dr. Mitsuro Hotta (Japan). Some of the shown films and pictures are meanwhile many years old, so please appologize the picture quality, however, all speakers are prominent CP-experts and well known for their world-wide publications.

continues with our lecture on the filmtrip through the Eastern Kimberley. Large Drosera ordensis can be found directly at the roadside and a boat trip down the Ord River provides great pictures of the unique landscapes. Our search for the unusual red sundew is finally successful, so we are able to document a very nice growing site on video. Showing the pictures after our return to Germany, a CP-friend recognised the plant and told us that not only he grew it from Australian seeds, it is present in diverse CP-collections since about 1997, labelled as Drosera indica "red". Finally we are able to show a living plant to Dr. Jan Schlauer (Germany), an international known CP-expert and editor of Carnivorous Plant Newsletter (CPN), who examined all details of the species. In December 2001 he published his results: the botanical description for Drosera hartmeyerorum Schlauer spec. novae in CPN.
During the Tokyo conference Prof. Dr. Stephen Williams (USA) offered to examine the amazing yellow emergences of the plant with a scanning electron microscope (SEM). As a result of this co-operation we are now - after the conference - able to show even detailled SEM images (by Regina Kettering, USA). The unique yellow shining honeycomb structures of the glandless tentacle-head are obviously hollow giant cells which act like yellow rear reflectors.

Meanwhile about 50% of our report has been uploaded, so let us take a little time for some impressions filmed in the city of Tokyo. We show the perfect arranged buffet banquet which took place in a wonderful ambiance between fascinating fossiles at the National Science Museum, and Prof. Dr. Katsuhiko Kondo (University Hiroshima, chair-person of the organizing committee) notifies some statistics on the conference for us.

features a great lecture on systematics by Dr. Jan Schlauer (Germany). Due to its scientific content, please refer to the conference proceedings for the full text. However, watching the distribution maps the interested CP-enthusiast will be able to learn a lot about the world wide proliferation of CP genera.

provides the Droseraceae symposium held 2002 June 22, beginning with "Comparative physilology of the Droseraceae sensu strictu. How do tentacles bend and traps close." by the famous Prof. Dr. Stephen E. Williams (USA).

The Droseraceae symposium continues. Enjoy the second part of Prof. Dr. Stephen E. Williams' lecture on the trap movement, and the first part of Prof. Dr. Wayne R. Fagerberg's (USA) lecture "Changes in trap tissue relationships during closure-reopening in Venus's Flytrap. A possible model to explaine trap morphological changes.", to be continued with part 13 of our conference report.

provides lectures from the symposium on Droseraceae. Please enjoy the second part of Prof. Dr. Wayne R. Fagenberg's lecture on possible models to explain trap morphological changes of Venus's Flytrap, and the lecture "Chemical substance concerning the leaf movement of Dionaea muscipula" by Prof. Dr. Minoru Ueda (Japan).
The ICPS World Conference 2002 in Tokyo, Japan - Part 14
provides the lecture "The structural basis for nutrient transport in the pitchers of Nepenthes" by Prof. Dr. T. Page Owen, Jr. (USA). With many SEM pictures, the interesting mirco-structures of peristome, nectar- and digestive glands can be seen. Using carboxyfluorescein as a marker, also the way which nutrients take through the absorbing glands is documented under the microscope.

lecture "Recent observations on the genus Heliamphora (Sarraceniaceae)"
by Dr. Andreas Wistuba (Germany). Visiting numerous Tepuis and the Grand Savanna,
his lecture features well known and new discovered Heliamphora
species but also Brocchinia, Catopsis, Drosera, Genlisea
The ICPS World Conference 2002 in Tokyo, Japan - Part 16
This is the last part of our report on the ICPS World Conference in Tokyo. Please enjoy the second part of Dr. Andreas Wistuba's lecture "Recent observations on the genus Heliamphora (Sarraceniaceae)". After this lecture the participants of the conference entered a bus to start a CP-excursion. We show some pictures from the first break at the Toshogu Shrine. The final goal, the habitat of Pinguicula ramosa on the vulcano Mount Koshin, has been visited the next day.The whole life-cycle of this endemic butterwort can be seen with Dr. Chiaki Shibata's (Japan) film provided with part 1 of our conference report.
