Many of the succulent genera-Agave, Haworthia, Kalanchoe, & Yucca, for example-include some of the best-known & most often cultivated house plants, & few plants of any kind can compete with Lithops for sheer weirdness. The Preston-Mafhams' book on cacti concentrates on the globular cacti, particularly Mammillaria, but includes some popular columnar forms such as Echinocereus. Both books represent truly remarkable values.About the Author:
Dr. Maurizio Sajeva is based at the Department of Botany at the University of Palermo in Italy and is president of the Italian Cactus and Succulent Society.
