Abstract: Carnivorous aquatic plants, genus Utricularia (Lentibulariaceae), capture small aquatic organisms, such as rotifers, copepods, and cladocerans, by means of anatomical structures named bladders.
The genus Utricularia makes up 42 % of all plants classified as carnivorous (Juniper et al.
New studies include morphological aspects of the species that conform the genus Utricularia (Rutishauser and Brugger 1992, Sattler and Rutishauser 1992, Rutishauser 1993), the time it takes to capture their prey, the cost of their carnivory, their investment on carnivory and the quantification of number, size and biomass of the bladders (Friday 1989, 1992, Knight and Frost 1991, Knight 1992, Pompeo and Bertuga 1996).
