Brazil - a marvellous Cactus-Country
special exhibition unti 31. March 2006
Brazil - this is not only Cipirinha and Carneval...
Many drought-resistant Cacti grow especially in the dry northeast. Many endemic cacti do occur there, together with several other succulents. The exhibition explains the plants and shows living specimens. Further, the evolution of botanical research done in this part of the world is given. Due to the activities of the famous Swiss Collector Werner Uebelmann, many new species were introduced in the second half of the last century. The recent Number of our journal "Die Sukkulentenwelt" (Nr.10, CHF 8.- on place) will give you further reading on the topic, while being back home again. Please come and enjoy.
