First classification of cacti based mainly (although not only!) on the molecular genetics (DNA) and explained.
No book on cacti has never gone this far with illustrations, both in quantity (+9500 photos) and quality, but also in
diversity, with plants photographed in habitat and collection at different stages of growth, also with flowers, fruits and
even seeds (more than 360 species photographed on digital microscope)!
And of course, you will find all the latest discoveries!
At last, you will be able to identify and classify your cacti correctly!

Since the beginning of 2015, volumes 3 and 4 are in the process of creation: they should be published by 2021-22.
They could be a little less pages than the first two. They will include:
- Description of all recognised taxa including recent ones (± 2600-2700 species and subspecies)
- Illustrated Dictionary of seeds in colour (gallery of almost all taxa photographied with a digital microscope).
- Portrait of most of the people who gave his name to a species or subspecies.
- Distribution map for each taxon.
A big huge and most complete work on Cactaceae, never done before.
