Succulent Flora of Southern Africa , first published in 1981, has long served as an authoritative guide for academics and lay enthusiasts alike. This long-awaited third edition takes into account intervening taxomic advances and the discovery and naming of ever more species. All information has been fully revised, updated and supplemented in line with the latest thinking, and the book has been newly designed for clarity and ease of reference. Given the phemenal extent and variety of our region's succulent flora, this revised version is a timely addition to the botanical literature of southern Africa.
