Abstract

In a paper presented last year in this forum (Fuentes and Murillo, 1996), we visualized some
scenarios for enhanced use of cactus, of which the best had education as a required variable. It
was established that, to have a better future, education of people was a must in order to
preserve the ecosystem. That education includes:
* Awareness of the use of cactus to control erosion in the northern areas of Mexico and
southern areas of the USA
* Promoting consumption of cactus products
