Mesembryanthemums and the Problems of Their Cultivation

  • Hans-Helmut Poppendieck
Part of the NATO Conference Series book series (NATOCS, volume 1)


The collection of the Mesembryanthemaceae is the largest specialized collection of the Hamburg Botanic Garden. It has been set up for the research needs of a group of systematists at the Institute of General Botany, which forms one administrative unit with the garden. The team consists of Professor Ihlenfeldt, Dr hartmann and myself together with a technical assistant and several undergraduate students, and we are concentrating chiefly on the morphological and taxonomic problems in this interesting group of succulent plants.
