On the cover The spectacular cliffs at Shaat, in the Sultanate of Oman, are home to a large number of interesting plants, many of them succulent. Among those of particular appeal to the collector are Dracaena off. ombet, seen here in profile. Growing alongside is a new species of Euphorbia, described in this issue, while at its base and elsewhere on the cliff, the endemic Aloe whitcombei is discernible. Tom McCoy, renowned for his fearless exploration of such places, risked life and ageing limb leaning over the edge to capture this view during the monsoon season, September 2011.
