 Abstract : Assessment of Genetic divergence using Mahalanobis’s D2 statistics was carried out with the help of karyotype analysis among six species of Aloe growing in Ranchi, Jharkhand. The six species of Aloe could be grouped into three constellations. The clustering pattern indicated that clustering was due to genetic distance. These distances suggested that the genetic recombination among genotype of these clusters would result in considerable heterosis.
