ACS biologist’s article on senita cactus range extension published in Madroño

A manuscript coauthored by ACS biologist Stephanie Cobbold was published this year in Madroño, a journal of peer-reviewed research articles on the natural history of Western American plants. The article describes a range extension of the senita cactus (Lophocereus schottii) in Arizona. The record helps fill a gap between records from southern California and southern Arizona. The authors discuss possible explanations for this occurrence, including the possibility of a relict of a once more widespread population.
