Forest pillar

The Forest Pillar is a Forest Biological Resource Center (FBR) distributed over 3 operational sites (Orléans, Pierroton and Avignon) and 2 sites providing support activities (Versailles and Nancy). It brings together Forest Biological Resources, such as collections of seeds, pollens and individuals, genomic resources and samples of leaves, needles or wood.
