by Gordon Rowley -- 1978 256pgs.
In the forward, the author describes his attempt to distance himself from the usual format of an encyclopedia. In his words, "...an overall view of succulents as one element of the world flora, noting their distinguishing features in structure mode of life, habitat, reproduction and survival, their evolution and their systematic classification." This book is written in a manner that will appeal to the neophyte as well as the more experienced cactophile. Considerable information on cultivation, propagation and care. Also well organized and illustrated.
This book is available in our lending library.
