Figure 10

Normalised filament profile from field and greenhouse N. rafflesiana pitchers. Data show field measurements for fluid from newly-opened (black circles) and 20-day old (grey circles) N. rafflesiana pitchers alongside the profile for a newly-opened greenhouse plant (open circles) fluid reported in FigureĀ 6. Data have been decimated for clarity. Data points are Seymour measurements. Solid line shows the fit to Equation (2) and dotted line shows the fit to the Giesekus fluid model, Equation (3); UCM and Giesekus parameters are those for pitcher 19 in Additional file 4: Tables S2 and Additional file 5: Table S3.
