For several, different reasons, Cuba is still a paradise rich of little known, unique plants and animals. This book, illustrated with magnificent images, deals with the history of the Melocacti of Cuba and includes extensive information on their habitats and their ecology. 

Besides listing the classification of all Cuban species of Melocactus, the authors cover the origin and genetic evolution of the various taxa and their relationships. The book includes a chapter on cultivation and an appendix including all known field numbers of Melocactus in chronological order.


We are sorry, but we cannot send the book free of charge to members outside Italy, because the postage is too expensive.
