Prey selection in three species of the carnivorous aquatic plant Utricularia (bladderwort
Plants in the genus Utricularia (bladderworts
) occur in all 50 states.
"The big story is that only 3 percent of the bladderwort
's genetic material is so-called 'junk' DNA," Albert said.
Albert said that only 3 percent of the bladderwort
's genetic material is so-called 'junk' DNA and somehow it has been able to get rid of most of what makes up plant genomes.
He also captured the pond-dwelling bladderworts
as they snap shut their traps in less than a millisecond and the vampirelike sundews, which snare prey with sticky tentacles and suck the life from them.

Some, like floating bladderwort
, are amenable to interpretation.
When prey happen to float by a carnivorous bladderwort
growing in a pond, a tiny door on the plant's underwater sac quickly opens, sucking in water--and tiny swimming organisms--in one hundredth of a second.
