The French National Collection of forage and turf species (grasses and legumes).

Latest version published by BRC Forage and turf, INRA Lusignan on Mar 9, 2012 BRC Forage and turf, INRA Lusignan

Academic scientists from INRA (French national agronomic research institute) and breeders from French seed companies have collected natural populations, landraces and old cultivars of grass and legume species bred for forage and turf usage. These genetic sources are maintained as seed lots in cold storage by INRA. Geographical coordinates express collection site coordinates in the case of natural populations and storage site coordinates in the case of landraces and old cultivars.

Data Records

The data in this occurrence resource has been published as a Darwin Core Archive (DwC-A), which is a standardized format for sharing biodiversity data as a set of one or more data tables. The core data table contains 537 records.

This IPT archives the data and thus serves as the data repository. The data and resource metadata are available for download in the downloads section. The versions table lists other versions of the resource that have been made publicly available and allows tracking changes made to the resource over time.
