    It is an important distinction to remember and it is valuable to have a section on succulents in this book. You will learn that although most cacti cannot be grown in northern states, a decent number of species like those in the prickly pear family and even some columnar cacti will grow year round with snow on the ground. Hundreds of photos help simplify the identification of such genera as Echinocereus, Mammillaria, Parodia, and many more. For both lay readers and for researchers looking for lots of data about the cacti of this rich flora, this book offers fascinating details presented in a very readable fashion.

    Given the extremely variable growth characteristics of Cacti, having these photos -although black and white- makes identification of variations much easier. All but 7 out of pages are graced with one or more fantastic pictures of show-quality specimens, which are great for identification or merely for viewing pleasure. This book is specific to the identification of the globular cacti that are commonly collected by enthusiasts with potted collections. The Native Cacti of California is a wonderful resource for locating the widely spread out species in the large state of California.

    There are many large pictures throughout - mostly of habitat plants. While this might leave a beginner collector scatching thier head as to what this means; those more seasoned will be able to fondly guess at which species are covered in this book. They turned what must have been a mountain of information and imagery into a coherent, visually stimulating and eminently reader-friendly product. Original descriptions in Latin are included and even climate graphs for various regions where the species occur. The Genus Turbinicarpus is pages and a useful addition for those wanting to better understand this taxonomically controversial grouping of cacti. Cacti of the Southwest W.
