Cacati and Succulents of Baja California

John Pilbeam (2015).

This book is an account of the discovery by the author and friends over the past 30-odd years of the wonderful wealth of cacti and succulents which occur in Baja California, Mexico. In its narrow 404 miles in length, this peninsula is home to a plethora of cacti and succulents--many endemic. They number some 30 Mammillaria, 16 Ferocactus, 13 Echinocereus, several columnar cacti--i.e. Bergerocactus, Myrtillocactus, Pachycereus and Stenocereus, including the unique ‘creeping devil’, S. eruca, 13 Opuntia, 3 Corynopuntia, 30 Cylindropuntia, 2 Peniocereus; and 24 Agave, 27 Dudleya, as well as other smaller succulent genera, Asclepias, Bursera, Cistanthe, Euphorbia, Fouquieria (including Idria), Hesperoyucca, Ibervillea, Jatropha, Nolina, Pachycormus, Sedum and Yucca---in fact a wealth of cacti and succulent plants rivaling any comparable area in the world. Also included is a map of Baja, California and a checklist of all the cacti and succulents in Baja. With 233 pages and 437 color photos, it is an inspirational account of one of the few remaining, largely primitive, unspoiled wild places where nature still holds sway. 8-1/2" x 11", hardbound w/color dustjacket.
