Georges Couderc. His Life, his Work, the Wine
Averelle et François Morisson-Couderc
LIVRE EN ANGLAIS
Version anglaise du livre "Georges Couderc, sa vie, son œuvre, la vigne"
From a very young age, Georges Couderc was enthralled by his work: even as a fully qualified agricultural engineer, he took every opportunity to broaden and deepen his knowledge of the natural world. In the late 1860s, as phylloxera rampaged through the vineyards, his scientific discoveries helped safeguard and protect many of the agricultural communities of the time. His work in the fields of botany, vine hybridisation, fungal disease, ink disease, citrus fruit and reforestation is known throughout the world, and remains as relevant today as it was all those decades ago. He is, deservedly, one of the great names in viticulture.
In this lavishly illustrated biography, Averelle and François Morisson-Couderc trace the extraordinary career of scientist and scholar Georges Couderc, chronicling his many discoveries with the help of original documents and personal correspondence.
