About this book

The classification of the dwarf Andean opuntias has long fascinated James Iliff. In Studies in the Opuntioideae (Cactaceae), devoted to an important group of cacti – the subfamily Opuntioideae – whose classification has been somewhat neglected compared with their cousins in the rest of the cactus family, Iliff's annotated checklist is complemented by ground-breaking papers on aspects of the classification and evolution of the subfamily as a whole and on its representatives in other parts of its wide natural range in North and South America.
