128 colour plates, (including 51 colour distribution maps), large 8vo, pp xii, 499, a very good new copy. (The first comprehensive account of the family in the region to be published since 1890. Covers the histories of both discovery and classification, phytogeography and palaeoclimates, conservation, documentation, identification.) The Cactus family is an almost entirely New World group of unique plants. Within the Neotropics there are only a few geographical centres of cactus diversity. The third most important of these is Eastern Brazil. Phytogeographically isolated from other cacti habitats by 'hostile' environments, this region boasts a high percentage of endemic taxa, making it a discrete area of study and of great importance for conservation. This landmark publication includes 77 full page colour plates and 51 colour maps.
