Since the seventies, Inra Guadeloupe has progressively gathered a herbarium, which now compasses about 10 000 specimens from the Lesser Antilles (mainly Guadeloupe and Martinique). Jacques Fournet, a now retired Inra scientist, co-ordinated this work of collect and identification. The herbarium is referenced under the acronym GUAD by Index Herborarium. The samples are kept in cardboard boxes, under low rate of hygrometry. The work is in progress to photography the samples, to make them consultable on the web site (collections.antilles.inra.fr).
