FERREIRA, Daniel Furtado  y  REZENDE, Gabriel Dehon Sampaio Peçanha. Use of canonical variates in genetic divergence studies. Braz. J. Genet. [online]. 1997, vol.20, n.3 ISSN 0100-8455.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0100-84551997000300022.

Exact correlation coefficients between a canonical variate and measured traits were derived to evaluate genetic divergence among varieties. This method allows the plant breeder to determine which traits contribute significantly to genetic divergence and, also, to identify the most important among them. An example is presented, related to a trial where 28 varieties of maize were evaluated for two traits
