Bolivia's Amazing Diversity of Cacti by Martin Lowry
Program: Bolivia's Amazing Diversity of Cacti

In this program, Martin Lowry presents the country's huge diversity of cacti from Aylostera to Yungasocereus. The plants are shown in relation to their natural environments, delineated by climatic and geographical characteristics, and illustrated with images in habitat taken during the many expeditions he has made to this fascinating country.

Short Biography:

Martin is a retired academic radiologist. He first started accumulating succulent plants in 1977, joining the National Cactus and Succulent Society the following year. After several years maintaining a general collection, in 1985 he became a member of “The Chileans” and began to specialize in the Andean cacti of South America, particularly Echinopsis and Lobivia. For several years he held the UK’s National Collection of these genera. In 2001 he attended his first IOS meeting and subsequently became a core member of the International Cactaceae Systematics Group and contributed to the production of The New Cactus Lexicon.

He has travelled extensively in South America making twenty field trips there since 1996, most of those to Bolivia. He has published many articles on cacti, two of which described new species. He is currently treasurer to the International Organization For Succulent Plant Study (IOS).
