INTRODUCTION This book contains the results of a Symposium on the
physiological ecology of plants of the lowland wet tropics held in Mexico in June
1983 organized by the Instituto de Biologia of the National University of Mexico (
U.N.A.M.), and sponsored by UNAM, CONACYT, NSF and UNESCO (CIET). A
workshop portion of the Symposium was held at the tropical research station at
Los Tuxtlas, Veracruz. This Symposium originated in response to the increasing
interest in the ...

Raven and Axelrod (1974) proposed the origins for these families in the tropics of
South America, with subsequent dispersal northward during the Tertiary. It is
likely that these succulents were already adapted to arid environments (possibly
exhibiting CAM) upon their arrival in North America. Even the most primitive
genera of the Cactaceae exhibit nighttime accumulation of organic acids (e.g.,
Pereskia; Nobel and Hartsock 1986b), suggesting early origins of CAM-like
activity.
