Thank you very much, KT. These cutting edge reference publications are better than anything amazon can offer.

I haven't been able to download the PDF yet (unsure if server-side or my side problems) but really looking forward to it. Needless to say, I will donate again.

Donated $5, but as of yet unable to download the pdf.

Will keep trying and all too glad to help support a fellow Nexian.

Cheers.

"My advice to people today is as follows: if you take the game of life seriously, if you take your nervous system seriously, if you take your sense organs seriously, if you take the energy process seriously, you must turn on, tune in, and drop out."
"Drop Out--detach yourself from the external social drama which is as dehydrated and ersatz as TV. Turn On--find a sacrament which returns you to the temple of God, your own body. Go out of your mind. Get high. Tune In--be reborn. Drop back in to express it. Start a new sequence of behavior that reflects your vision." -Timothy Leary

I've tested the file for downloading and it worked and opened OK. It might be that the failed download attempts occurred when I was reuploading the file? Or if it displayed but did not download, deliberately selecting "save" might be required for it to save the file to your computer.
Please let me know if any problems are persistent and I can create a mirror download page or would be happy to do something like 'dropbox' a copy if needed.
Thanks for being supportive of what I do.

Downloads perfectly today, I just got it and looks like my plans of going early to bed vanished. Amazing job. And the cactus porn addict wet dream.

I had an idea and would appreciate thoughts anyone might have.
The book Sacred Cacti is something I've been working to get out for sometime. Such a long time that it might be doubted it will be completed. I know doubts have crossed my mind occasionally.
One challenge has always been acquiring and then processing the wealth of references needed to bring it up to date. Despite my best efforts and several amazing people (two from this forum!) who are helping me acquire papers it appears that completion is going to be delayed due to the size of what is still needed - largely in the area around betalains in Opuntia and Hylocereus species (not just to acquire the papers but to process and digest the details of their contents). This slow but inavoidable process has previously resulted in the delayed release of Sacred Cacti and Part C for over a decade so that realization makes me uncomfortable.
Whenever I wait as little as two years there is always enough new work that I feel the need to rewrite at least parts of it. Any compendium of phytochemical work can at best be regarded as a work in progress and subject to change based on future research.
I am thinking of putting the present versions online * in their entirety * as sort of in-progress proof copies. I began this process with Cactus Chemistry By Species and plan to replace that work with an updated version as well as putting the Cactus Alkaloids book online. Hopefully both of those will occur within not many days from now. Then I can focus on finally getting Sacred Cacti Part A out followed by the updated and revised San Pedro book.
Whenever I obtain and digest the rest of what I need to actually complete the larger book Sacred Cacti, be that a year from now or another ten years from now, the online pdfs can be replaced with the newer versions. In the meantime perhaps their availability can be of service as reference tools while permitting readers to help me eliminate errors or to suggest edits and additions?

I've been assessing what I am doing and found that in creating Sacred Cacti's sections I have so far incorporated more than 2900 references for its three parts.
By the time I get something approaching comprehensive done I anticipate that it will add between 1 and 2 thousand more papers on Opuntia & Hylocereus alone, easily a thousand papers on norepinephrine, almost as many for each of epinephrine, salsolidine and dopamine, some hundreds more titles for each of synephrine, tyramine and hordenine and some hundreds more papers on the assorted other cactus species, taxonomic issues and alkaloids.
A couple of people on this forum have been helping me obtain papers I lack but fulfilling that will surely fry them (and me.)
I can continue to delay release of current material while I acquire and process my way through that daunting mass of data or I can release what I have done with them sooner in hopes readers can help me spot errors and suggest updates while I continue to work my way towards completion.
My goal is to get all four books released by Spring of 2014 or before. With luck the current version of Sacred Cacti Part C Cactus Chemistry will be online in its entirety within no more than days. I am targeting Part A to be online by the end of the year and the revised San Pedro by Spring or before.

Eventually the completed works can replace the in-progress works but in the meantime the information they contain will become more readily accessible.

Thanks KT! Thumbs up

I'm happy to assist in acquiring papers as well to help move things along. Just let me know what you need. Big grin

Thanks for that!
I'll send a PM with a few titles.
Thanks for whatever happens!
It looks like I can most likely have the next two book uploads in place within the next day or so and will keep chugging my way through the rest of the literature as it reaches my hands and replacing the books with updated versions whenever significant progress occurs in the future.

Both sections of Sacred Cacti Part C Cactus Chemistry are finally now available!

The Cactus Alkaloids (27 Mb/ 384 pages)
http://www.largelyaccura...ationmedia.com/C13.html

Cactus Chemistry By Species (227 Mb/ now expanded to 634 pages with more than 1400 images)
http://www.largelyaccura...ationmedia.com/C10.html

I very much welcome any corrections or suggestions for addition of anything I missed.

I'll replace these with newer versions whenever the progress merits it. It seems of value to have these available while I work my way through the stack of literature that is still ahead of me.
As far as I can determine, Cactus Chemistry By Species appears to be fairly thorough concerning reported occurrences of alkaloids, needs some additions of several papers on triterpenoids and still needs a lot in the area around betalains.

I hope they are both found useful despite neither one being polished yet.


The prior version of Cactus Chemistry By Species that was mentioned above (69 mb/ 344 pages) is still available but its URL has been re-addressed:
http://www.largelyaccura...tionmedia.com/C10o.html

Part B, The San Pedro book, is also still online:

With my apologies for posting a replacement so soon but people who enjoyed Cactus Chemistry By Species will really want to replace it with the last revision (22 dec, 672 pp, 253 Mb).
I felt it was necessary as Molly Klein granted me the permission to include her results on mescaline distribution inside the Lophophora plant. Her thesis was completed as was a poster presentation at the Economic Botany conference in London but it has not yet been published in a peer review journal. Cactus Chemistry By Species includes the highlights that are possible without potentially compromising its publication. I look forward to her piece coming into print with a complete accounting of the details! She analyzed the crown, the subterranean stem and the root separately on a number of wild specimens to assess the mescaline content in each part and to assess how much variation there was between individuals.
