The opening of our research infrastructures (analytical facilities, observation and field trials, modeling platforms) is clearly a priority of the UMR. This strategy is supported by the certification of two of our four skill units (SU) PHENOBOIS and PGTB by our two supervisory bodies, as well as the opening of certain field trials through their inclusion within INRAE research infrastructures (In-Sylva & INRAE Genomics) and their respective national roadmaps (In-Sylva France, RARe, France Génomique). A management plan for the data resulting from the UMR's activities has been developed by the COMPUTER SCIENCE SU. It is based on the model proposed by DMP OPIDOR and is accompanied by a tool for managing data and metadata developed internally.
With this section dedicated to the UMR resources we wish to : (i) recognize the work and the technical and scientific skills of our staff (included in the OEL and COMPUTER SCIENCE SUs) and the partners we are committed to working with, and (ii) make them more visible in order to promote their opening to the national and international scientific community and to the stakeholders who will see opportunities for demonstration platforms. For any request for access to UMR resources, please contact the management team (

The research work conducted within the UMR is based on in situ, in silico and in lab resources.

IN SITU. These correspond to observation sites and experimental trials followed on a more or less long term basis. These sites are managed by the staff of the unit or in collaboration with the Experimental Forest Unit of Pierroton (UEFP) or other partners. Our unit also hosts two observatories: FAUNA, a wildlife observatory which collects and standardizes data on the biodiversity of the Nouvelle-Aquitaine Region; and the observatory of forest Health with the secondment of a remote sensing expert, national referent of the Department of Forest Health (DSF) of the Ministry of Food and Agriculture.
As for the ground rules on co-authorship and acknowledgement associated with the work carried out on these outdoor research facilities, a very inspiring proposal is provided here, which serves as a guide for the ORPHEE experiment of the TREEDIVNET network.

  • access to in situ resources here

IN SILICO. These correspond to software, databases, programs or computer models produced by the research unit.

  • access to in silico resources here

IN LAB. These resources mainly concern collections of samples, insects and a fungi which add to the unit's heritage.

  • access to in lab resources (in progress)
