Aim: The study aimed to
compare morphological characters and Inter-simple sequence repeat (ISSR) data
based trees, and examine the genetic relations in ten olive varieties among
cultivated type olives grown commonly in different regions of Turkey.
olive varieties were evaluated with some morphologic markers and ISSR marker.
All analyses were conducted with Numerical Taxonomy System (NTSYS). The
cluster analysis was performed with unweighted pair group method with
arithmetic average (UPGMA) clustering algorithm.
results showed that there was a moderate correlation between pairwise
distances estimated from ISSR data and distances from morphological
characters (0.511). The Euclidean Distance matrix represented that the lowest
value was between Tavsan Yuregi and Cilli (1.62), while the highest value was
between Manzanilla and Cekiste (7.91). According to Jaccard coefficient, the
samples closest to each other were (Memecik and Gemlik); and the samples
farthest to each other were (Halhali and Manzanilla).
Interpretation: Determining the
genetic relations in agriculturally economic plants is valuable in terms of
protecting the gene sources, determining the homonyms and synonyms, and
developing breeding programs. Morphological and molecular markers may be used
in the identification of genetic variability. Mutually complementary
information can be obtained by using morphological and molecular markers
