= "Backeberg based much of his work on collections made during extensive travels through Central and South America. An autodidact, many of his classifications were, however, based on flawed assumptions about the family's evolution. His publications Die Cactaceae (1958-1962) and Kakteenlexikon (1966) were substantial works that demonstrated a true passion for these plants, but also garnered criticism for some careless descriptions of taxa".
