Abstracts. Nucleon spectroscopy studies the nucleon and its resonances. In photoproduction of mesons below a beam energy of 2 GeV, the main process is the excitation of nucleon resonances. This can be used to complement the study of these resonances, usually carried out with pion-nucleon scattering. A basic presentation of the lightest mesons and the resonances is done. The formalism of the pseudoscalar meson photoproduction is given. The data bases are described. Detailed developements in η and ω meson photoproduction on the proton are reported. Key words: mesons, photoproduction, nucleon resonances. 1
