Study for the assessment of the diversity of 9 chamomiles (Matricaria chamomilla L.) populations, surveyed and collected in nine districts of Albania (Lezha, Kruja, Berat, Fier, Skrapar, Tirana, Lushnja, Kucova and Korca), using morphological markers was carried out in the, Experimental field of Agricultural University of Tirana, during two growing seasons. The 10 chamomile populations, grown in a randomized block with three replications, were assessed by some morphological quantitative characters [10,11], (plant height, number of principal branches, length of internodes per plants) ANOVA and cluster analysis reveal presence of significant diversity, and the association among different morphological characters. Relationships between the morphological character’s plant height and length of internodes per plants based on probability in the same point all average of plant height and length of internodes per plants are in correlation with each other. Correlation relationships among morphological quantitative characters range under 1. The study identifies the relation between plant height and length of internodes per plants as characters with agronomic interest which account for genetic diversity improvement of chamomile populations.
