In this study 21 coriander populations the accumulated from different regions of Iran was conducted¬ augmented design at Shahid Chamran University of Ahvaz. Some of morphological characteristics (Time of emergence, plant height, fresh and dry weight, Seed weight)and anti¬oxidant (carotenoids, vitamin c, catalas and proxidase) of these populations were evaluated. The analysis of variance showed that there are significant differences between genotypes in fresh and dry weight and Seed weight.The principal component analysis declared three components which accounted 74.31% of total variation. Based on cluster analyses UPGMA method, populations were separated in 4clusters. The first cluster included populations of Bushehr (1), and Khuzestan (2) with shortest mean of emergence, highest mean fresh and dry weight of leaves, stems, plant, seed weight, and maximum the vitamin C and proxidase in comparative with groups as the most compatiblein the Ahwaz conditions are introduced. We can be used as this a good genetic diversity among of native coriander populations and can be used it as a valuable genetic resource for breeding in next works.
