Multivariate analysis of phenotypic diversity of Coffea arabica

  title={Multivariate analysis of phenotypic diversity of Coffea arabica},
  author={Christophe Montagnon and Pierre Bouharmont},
  journal={Genetic Resources and Crop Evolution},
Eighteen different morphological and agronomical traits observed in a field collection of 148 accessions of Coffea arabica were analyzed using multivariate analysis. For the first time, a clear structure is observed within this species with the identification of two main groups. Accessions of group 1 have a more erect branching habit, narrower leaves and are on average more resistant to coffee leaf rust and coffee berry disease than accessions of group 2. Group 1 mostly contains Ethiopian… CONTINUE READING
