Bradleya 15

British Cactus & Succulent Society Yearbook

Author: Various

Of six papers on cacti, two involve field studies in Brazil. One covers bat pollination; the other pollen morphology as an aid to better understanding of the genera and species.
Charles Glass & J.Martinez-Avalos describe a new Mammillaria from Tamaulipas, and for the nomenclaturists there is an unravelling of the tangled taxonomy of Neolloydia gautii: the last word - or is it? Charles Nelson provides a major historical review of the 63 cacti sent for naming by the Irish botanist Thomas Coulter to De Candolle, with modern name equivalents. The ongoing Opuntia Index from Crook & Mottram offers all the F words (unexpurgated).

Steven Hammer writes in his inimitable style two "Odes on Mesembryanthemum", covering field observations on 12 genera, 3 new conophytums and 1 new Delosperma. And if you have ever puzzled over those extraordinary cactus-like spine clusters (diadems) on the leaf tips of Trichodiadema, puzzle no longer: they are elucidated in full and assessed in regard to classification of the whole genus.

Werner Rauh & René Hebding describe new kalanchoes from Madagascar with customary lavish colour photographs, and E.v.Jaarsveld & D.Koutnik describe novelties in Cotyledon and Tylecodon with fine paintings by Elise Bodley.

Portulacaeeae Last but not least, Urs Eggli expounds on a species of Portulaca new to Madagascar.All the articles are illustrated, and Bradleya keeps up its reputation for offering authors free use of colour.
