About this book

Monumental study of the Cactaceae covering 125 genera and 1810 species. Descriptions are short but information-packed, and the book includes more than 1000 colour photographs in addition to other illustrations. The introduction to each genus concentrates on the discovery of the cacti, and the improvements in the understanding of them, many of which result from relatively recent investigation. Also includes a chapter by Roger Brown on the cultivation of cacti, making the book even more useful to growers and hobbyists, as well as to taxonomists, ethnobotanists, and conservationists.
