Editorial Reviews


From the reviews:

"With the derivation of the currently accepted names of over 10.000 taxa, this dictionary is a useful supplement … . It is a valuable reference for plant scientist, horticulturists, and hobbyists with an interest in succulent plants." (P.L. Pisani, Advances in Horticultural Science, Issue: 3, 2005)

"Urs Eggli and Len Newton have compiled a thesaurus containing ‘a complete alphabetical list, together with concise explanations, of all the currently accepted names of succulent plants (including cacti)’. … this dictionary remains an updated and comprehensive reference for connoisseurs and enthusiasts, as well as horticulturists and botanists. I also found the book a pleasure to leaf through." (L. Di Martino, Cactus & Co. Vol. 8 (4), 2004)

3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Patrick J. Gray on March 30, 2009
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I am somewhat new at collecting succulents and joined the CSSA of Tulsa, OK just last month. I wanted this book to help me fit-in with discussions among veteran collectors and commercial growers. The book has indeed been enlightening in many ways, except in the area of pronounciation of Latin and/or Greek terms. For a book that is supposed to be a "Dictionary" with a price tag of $110+, I don't feel that such an expectation is out of line. The purpose of any dictionary is not only to clearify meanings of things, but to assist in virbally communicating those meanings to others. How is it pronounced? Which sylable is accented? What letters are silent? Is 'ch' pronounced ch as in child, or c as in cat? Also, though I wasn't expecting any, some illustrations would have been helpful at times. The book seems to want to target not only advanced botanists, but uninformed beginners as well. I believe it falls short on both ends, but on the positive side, there doesn't seem to be any other such referance book available anywhere, so I am grateful for all the information it has made available to me.
