dc.description.abstractThe vicinity of the Pyramid Peak Range in Dona Ana County, New Mexico, is a natural cactus garden which is surpassed in few places in the United States for variety and abundance of cacti and yucca-like plants. The writer took special notice of the cacti while collecting for the Los Angeles Museum in the Mesilla Valley region in July, August and September, 1930, and it seems quite worth while to record the results of these observations before that group of ruthless vandals known as commercial cactus collectors start their depredations in the region. There is a possibility that with attention called to this locality those interested in conservation in New Mexico may take steps to prevent its being despoiled. This is especially possible, since with the exception of a few unproductive mineral claims the land is publicly owned and absolutely useless for grazing, agriculture or mining, and could be set aside for the public enjoyment and study with little effort or expense.
