Abstract

Sixty-one wild lentil accessions representing all four species were evaluated in north-Indian climatic conditions at Pantnagar, The data were recorded on 20 quantitative traits and replication-wise means were subjected to Mahalonobis D2 analysis. All the accessions were grouped into 4 clusters, in which cluster 1 included 58 accessions while other clusters received only one accession each. It was also revealed that genetic diversity was not related to geographical diversity and species differences. Single seed weight, leaf rachis length and per cent germination were the characters contributing most towards to genetic divergence among the accessions.
