International demand for the uniquely spiky cactus family has brought them far beyond their desert homes. However, because of their appeal and medicinal potential, many species of cacti are endangered. The Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora, or CITES, has set extensive guidelines on how this plant family can be traded. This guide walk readers through the regulations, detailing the major groups of cacti in trade, their distribution, conservation status, use, and likelihood of illegal trade. Intended for enforcement agencies, commercial nurserymen, traders, collectors and amateur growers, CITES and Cacti includes identification tips and a fully illustrated PowerPoint that can serve as a training presentation, complete with speaker's notes.
