My aim is to provide a balanced, first-hand account of the plants in an ecological context, partly based on the research I performed on them in Brunei in 1989 and 1990. This information is intended to complement the recent taxonomic revision of Nepenthes by M. Jebb and M. Cheek.
reviewed Nepenthes of Borneo in the December 1998 issue of the Carnivorous Plant Newsletter. He described the work as a "good, solid book that treats its subject very well". Rice praised the publication's habitat photographs and wrote that the "[c]ontent that really makes this book interesting and different from other carnivorous plant books is its emphasis on the context of Nepenthes in its natural habitat".
