Well, with the occasional bit of time to spare, I may as well post a link or two to some very technical but potentially educational and fascinating scientific papers relating to CPs I discover here and there on the web.

Last Edit of this thread: 9 January 2006

I originally only posted free articles on this thread, but more and more scholarly journal sites are pay-access only. So now I've started also listing articles that are pay-access as well, but you can read abstracts for free. If the article you want to read isn't free, try checking a local college or university library, they may have an online 'subscription' to some of these journals, so you can read the full text there. Or you can order a paper copy of the article in question through Inter-Library Loan at your public library, possibly free or at a lesser charge than buying it online.

General CP Articles:
Annals of Botany, Vol. 87, no. 2, 2001 - First Nuclear DNA C-values for 25 Angiosperm Families (includes 5 various carnivorous species)(free)
