Two hundred genotypes of Coriandrum sanvum1. from Andhra Pradesh,Delhi, Rajasthan,
and West Bengal of India and U.S.A. were grouped into six clusters. D2. values between
genotypes ranged from 0.5 to 327. Intracluster D values ranged between 0 and 5.03 and
intercIuster between 5.26 and 17.30. Genetic diversity and geographic distribution were not
related. un 324 originating from Nagore district of Rajasthan was widely divergent from
all others. At least one genotype of Rajasthan was present in all the six clusters. Further, at
least one genotype from U.S.A. was present in four of the six clusters.The first two canonical
vectors accounted for 78% of tofal genetic variation.
Keywords: Canonical analysis, coriander, Coriandrum sativum, D2 statistic.
