The Trans-Pecos region of Texas is cacti-rich. Powell (emeritus, biology/Herbarium, Sul Ross State U., Alpine, Texas); his wife, Shirley Powell, who also contributed the illustrations; and Chihuahuan Desert Research Institute researcher James Weedin present an abridged version of Cacti of the Trans-Pecos and Adjacent Regions (Powell and James F. Weedin, 2004). Profiles with distribution maps and color photos describe all the state's genera with keys to the Tans-Pecos species. A glossary is provided for nonspecialists.
