of winged bean varieties.


Genetic analysis

The upper diagram illustrates a plot of 135 winged bean accessions on the first two axes of a Principal Coordinate Analysis carried out on a data matrix of 47 recorded agronomic variables.

The lower diagram shows the relationship between the eight most distinct accession groups generated by a Cluster Analysis carried out on the same data matrix but with 22 of the post-reproductive variable removed from the analysis.
