The Illustrated Handbook of Succulent Plants represents the first comprehensive taxonomic treatment of succulents in thirty years. It covers over 9000 taxa of all succulents except Cactaceae.
The volume on dicotyledonous families embraces succulents from 47 families and 161 genera, further 8 families are shortly mentioned. Thus, a total of over 2000 species and 500 infraspecific taxa are covered. The families Didiereaceae, Fouquieriaceae and Nolanaceae are treated in their entirety - Portulacaceae with nearly all species. Euphorbia, with some 700 species, is the largest genus described. Other frequently cultivated genera covered in this volume include: Othonna and Senecio (Asteraceae), Jatropha and Monadenium (Euphorbiaceae), Pelargonium (Geraniaceae), Adenia (Passifloraceae), Peperomia (Piperaceae), as well as Cissus and Cyphostemma (Vitaceae). The focus is on caudiciform succulents grown in cultivation.
