Résumé
Succulent plants are characterized by having leaves that are relatively thick, fleshy, and juicy as compared to herbaceous plants whose leaves are relatively thinner in structure and contain a higher proportion of dry matter. They may be annual or perennial and widely distributed within the families Crassulaceae, Cactaceae, Euphorbiaceae, and to a lesser extent in Asclepiadaceae, Begoniaceae, Liliaceae, and Compositae. They could be classified primarily as xerophytes, and accordingly are found naturally in the arid regions of the world, although ecological adaptation has increased their range considerably.
