Charles Darwin once called the Venus flytrap the most wonderful plant in the world—but he offered no explanation for how the fascinating little carnivore, which needs insects for both pollination and its next meal, could have evolved through natural selection.
Researchers at North Carolina State University recently discovered more evidence of intelligent design in the plants: They can somehow distinguish which insects serve as their pollinators and which are prey, and they don’t eat pollinating insects.
