You will find here a description of our entity and, especially, the terms and conditions of access to our forest biological resources of interest for research.

This editorial is also the opportunity to thank all the actors of the Pilier who have rallied to the task for over four years: the staff in the field, in IT and quality systems and, of course, the scientists who are responsible for creating the biological resources that the Pilier presents today.

Several successes have already marked the history of the creation of the Pilier : its certification as Infrastructure Scientifique Collective (Collective Scientific Infrastructure), an internal recognition of the INRAE, an IBISA certification, and, most recently, the ISO 9001 certification: the culmination of much effort and which provides us with new paths for improvement.
