Key words: Musa textilis L. Nee, principal component analysis, GxE interaction, Pearson’s correlation, cluster Analysis.


Taximetric statistical methods were carried out on morpho-agronomic traits from three Manila hemp (Philippine abaca) varieties planted in three locations in Southern Mindanao, Philippines. Principal Component analysis (PCA) resulted in the extraction of five principal components which collectively accounted for 99.85% of total variance. Continue reading

Key words: Breeding program, cluster analysis, controlled-cross-hand-pollination, phenotypic variation, principal component analysis.


Phenotypic variation on 26 well-known accessions of African plum collected from four provenances established as genebanks was assessed under controlled-field conditions using a full nested mating design. Data were recorded for 12 agro-morphological fruit traits using multivariate statistical techniques. Descriptive statistics for each studied trait were calculated. In addition, patterns of morphological variation were assessed using principal component analysis (PCA). Continue reading
