Semi-protected edit request on 24 August 2016[edit]


In the article Desert / Biogeography <https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Desert#Biogeography> it is stated that "Cacti are restricted to North America", which is not correct as they are also present in South America <https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cactus#Distribution>.

I would suggest something like "Cacti are present in both North and South America, with a post-Gondwana origin". I am not a cactus specialist, but the error is evident. 200.199.130.68 (talk) 18:20, 24 August 2016 (UTC)
