Document description

For a long time, the description of Vitis varieties and species using morphological characteristics has been the focus of many works by eminent ampelographists. The definition of these distinctive characteristics is the work of the OIV’s “Vine Selection” expert groupThe sheets of descriptive characteristics, translated into five languages (French, German, English, Spanish and Italian), provide a common reference for the OIV, the UPOV (Union Internationale pour la Protection des Obtentions Végétales) and Biodiversity International. From now on, through this standard work, all experts from these organisations can ensure that they are speaking the same language, which should contribute to a better understanding of the genetic heritage of Vitis. This work was translated into Arabic by the Tunisian expert and engineer, Fethi Askri. Edition: 2009
