About this book

Major new work on the Cactaceae, published under the auspices of the International Cactaceae Systematics Group (ICSG). An essential purchase for cactaceae specialists and botanical libraries.

From the publisher's announcement:

Planned as a successor to Backeberg's Cactus Lexicon, The New Cactus Lexicon will be the most scientifically authoritative conspectus of the Cactaceae published for nearly a century. It will be comprehensively illustrated in colour and is confidently expected to become the benchmark reference for all those with amateur or professional interests in the diversity, identification and conservation of cacti.

It will provide a concise compendium of information on cactus genera, species and subspecies accepted in the standard literature on cacti since Britton & Rose's famous monograph (1919-23), with references to places of publication, principal synonyms, geographical distribution, diagnostic features and brief commentary;

More than 2200 colour illustrations in a companion 'Atlas' (not available separately), mostly of plants in habitat or from documented plants in cultivation, covering nearly all currently recognized species and subspecies.

Preparation is being undertaken on behalf of the International Cactaceae Systematics Group (ICSG), an informal group founded in Zurich in 2000 to supersede the former Cactaceae Working Party of the International Organization for Succulent Plant Study (IOS).

Honorary editors: David Hunt, Nigel Taylor and Graham Charles, supported by a team of more than 100 contributors of illustrations, text and comments.
