This booklet looks primarily at the genera Carpobrotus, Disphyma and Sarcozona from the family Aizoaceae. Often confused, this booklet outlines the features used for identifying each genus and tips on cultivation. These plants are a very important source of food and water for animals and insects and even humans through history. They are common in sandy or disturbed soils, often found in coastal areas.
