Scientists from INRA (French national agronomic research institute) have collected old populations of shallot and garlic that were cultivated in France regions in the last centuries. This genetic material is maintained as field produced bulbs. Passport data for these genotypes have been recorded when available. Bulbs maintained by INRA are available under demand.

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 150 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.


The table below shows only published versions of the resource that are publicly accessible.
