4.1. [Introduction] Most plants usually get their nutrients from their roots in the soil. However, there are some known plants that trap and eat insects insead. It is interesting to find out why these plants eat insects and how they eat insects. [First Chapter] There are many plants that eat insects, They are called "Carnivorous Plant". Some of them are "Venus Flytrap", "Pitcher Plant", "Pitfall Trap", "Bladder Trap" , "Flypaper Trap" and etc. [Second Chapter] Some plants grow in thin soil or where nutrients are scarce that they don't get enough nutirnets through the roots and soil. Thus, these plants, over a long time period, adapted to the environment and learn to get their nutrients from the insects by capturing the insects and consuming the insects. [Third Chapter] The ways these plants consume insects are little bit different from each other, but one can catogorize the way the plants consume instects by two setps. The first is to capture the insect, mostly they use trap or stickness to capture the insects, then the second step is to dissolve the insect into liquid by the special enzymes or dissolving liquid. Once dissolved, then it is easier for the plants to consume. [Conclusion] As discussed above, some plants evolve to consume insects to get their enough nutirents by adapting to the harsh environment where the soil is thin or cannot get enough nutirents through the roots. Further, thse carnivoros plants consume insects by capturing (or trapping) the insects and dissolvoing the insects into waterly nutrients.
