From Federico Delpino   11 September 1875


Thanks for Thomas Belt’s Naturalist in Nicaragua [1874], which confirms some of his observations,

and for Insectivorous plants, which he praises.

Suggests that a book integrating knowledge of plant–animal interactions be written by a Darwinist.

Defines biology as the science of external interactions.

German reception is far more positive than Italian.

From Federico Delpino   18 April 1875


Looking forward to publication of Insectivorous plants, which he will review.

Paul Mantegazza has criticised FD on insectivorous plants

and CD on sexual selection; FD maintains dichogamy in plants supports sexual selection.
