According to dendrograms (Figures 5 and 6) attained by hierarchical clustering, class B can be divided into four easily distinguishable clusters and class M--into three clusters.
The distance matrix based on SSR data sets was used to construct a dendrogram, which is shown in Fig.
DGGE dendrograms of kiwifruit orchard showed that INN sites (KI 0/10 and KI 10/20) almost always clustered separately from CON sites (KC 0/10 and KC 10/20) for bacteria as well as fungal ribosomal genes (Fig.
The dendrogram displays the merging (or dividing) of clusters from the leaves to the root (or the root to the leaves) and the distance or dissimilarity between the merged (or split) clusters.
A composite dendrogram indicating the degree of genetic relatedness of isolates from specialised ICUs (labelled 1-24) and paediatric (labelled P1-P26), medical (M1-M23) and surgical wards (S1 -S11) is shown in Fig.
The 16 dendrograms that were generated exhibited considerable differences in topology.
2 illustrates the dendrograms derived from clustering the similarities between the languages as depicted by the confusion matrices in Table 3.

Instead of showing all 26 dendrograms, Table 3 displays a summary for all couples by showing how clusters were formed on the dendrograms and whose independent decisions the joint most closely resembled.

We should emphasize that the tree obtained following the above procedure is different from the popular dendrograms (the result of applying some traditional clustering techniques).
