Cacti are conspicuous and iconic parts of the Arizona landscape. These charismatic plants are textbook examples of surviving in desert regions. In this class we explore the diversity, biology, and adaptations of cacti that are found in Arizona. We will also discuss the identification of the various groups of Arizona cacti.
