Cactus = a succulent plant with a thick, fleshy stem that typically bears spines, lacks leaves, and has brilliantly colored flowers. Cacti are native to arid regions of the New World and are cultivated elsewhere, especially as houseplants.
"The Cactaceae" (1919-1923) was produced as the 1st complete investigation on the Cactaceae family.
