    A plant is considered carnivorous if it receives any noticeable benefit from catching small animals. The morphological and physiological adaptations to carnivory is most complex in plants. When considering the range of these adaptations, one realises that the carnivory is a result of a multitude of different features. This review is a selection of relevant articles, culled from a wide array of research topics on plant carnivory and focuses in particular on physiological processes associated with active trapping and digestion of prey. Carnivory offers the plants special advantages in habitats where nutrient supply is scarce. Counterbalancing costs are the investments in synthesis and the maintenance of trapping organs and hydrolyzing enzymes. With the progress in genetic, molecular, and microscopic techniques, we are well on the way to a full appreciation of various aspects of plant carnivory.
