Abstract: The aim of the present work is to study and compare the genotypic variation and similarities that exist between the Coriander leaves and seeds collected from Tarai and Kumaun region of Uttarakhand state of India. The comparative studies of preliminary phytochemical investigation using qualitative test is been performed on methanolic extracts of seventeen genotypes of Coriander leaves as well as seeds. The phytochemical screening revealed the presence of alkaloids, carbohydrates, glycosides, saponins, phytosterols, fixed oils and fats, phenols, tannins, flavonoids, protein and amino acids while absence of resins and tri terpenes in both leaves and seeds genotypes. The type of phytoconstituents of leaves and seeds of different genotypes were not similar. A statistical technique, cluster analysis has been performed in order to deduce consequential knowledge that displays variation in the data meticulously. This dissimilitude in the makeup of different phytoconstituents might be used for various applications such as health supplement and pharmaceutical benefits.
