    Cover illustration: The inset cover image shows mucilaginous digestive tentacles of the sundew Drosera capensis, a carnivorous plant with holokinetic chromosomes. Previous studies have suggested that carnivory or chromosomal holokinetism are correlated with genome downsizing and decrease in genomic GC content. An analysis of genomic parameters and their relationship to climatic niches was undertaken for 71 species of the second largest carnivorous family, Droseracae, using flow cytometry and phylogenetic methods to highlight the influence of environmental conditions on the evolution of genomic content. Genomic GC content of Droseracae is shown to positively correlate with genome size and annual temperature fluctuations. See Veleba et al. (pp. 409–416).
