This journey will take you to one of the most diverse spots in the world for cactus diversity. Participants are likely to discover over 100 species of Cactaceae, most of them in flower at the time we coordinate this tour. Besides cacti, the area we cover is rich in many other plants, including Tillandsia and other succulents.
The scenery is spectacular and diverse. This journey will also provide evidence of the importance of habitat knowledge in order to determine the validity of plant names and the issue “too many names for the same plant”. Diversity and variability of plants in habitat within populations and between populations will be examined. We will start our journey in Córdoba, at around 1,500 ft. and will visit some habitat reaching 12,000 ft. in the Andes.
