A sundew catapults prey into its sticky trap in 75 milliseconds: The catapult-flypaper trap of Drosera glanduligera. This is a botanical sensation which would certainly excite Charles Darwin, who was fascinated by sundews. Our collaboration with the Plant Biomechanics Group (University Freiburg, Germany) was published in 2012 at PLOS ONE: http://dx.plos.org/10.1371/journal.po....
