Abstract
Kaktusi su pripadnici porodice Cactaceae. Skoro svi kaktusi su sukulentne biljke, što znači da imaju zadebljale, mesnate djelove prilagođene za pohranjivanje vode. Danas su rasprostranjeni po cijelom svijetu. Kaktusi su vrlo raznoliki veličinom i izgledom. Zadnjih godina, kaktusi su postali vrlo bitni kao element hortikulturnog uređenja kako interijera tako i eksterijera. Postoje invazivne vrste kaktusa, a najbolji primjer je rod Opuntia koji se izvrsno prilagodio ekološkim uvjetima u Australiji i prekrio većinu površine Australskog kontinenta

Parallel abstract (English)
Cactuses are members of the plant family Cactaceae. Almost all cacti are succulents, meaning they have thickened, fleshy parts adapted to store water. Cactuses inhabit diverse regions all over the world. Cactuses have different appearances and sizes. Last few years, the castuses become very important as an element of horticulture, both interior and exterior. There are invasive species of cactus, and the best example is the genus Opuntia, which has in the past perfectly adapted to the environmental conditions in Australia and covered mostly whole surface of the Australian continent.
