Photo library

The varietal photo library

As a complement to the reference herbarium, the varietal photo library includes technical (black-and-white or color) photos of the main organs used for variety description: apex of the young shoot, fully-developed leaves, and bunches.

About 50 000 photos have thus been collected: digital photos or images digitalized from slides, or, for the older ones, from films or plates.

These technical photos are regularly used in various publications as well as in web sites such as the « PlantGrape » catalogue (

They are available, upon request, for any new editorial project.
