Phenotypic patterns associated with each of the 13 phylogroups of <i>P. syringae</i> revealed by a Multiple Correspondence Analysis (MCA).

<p>The analysis was based on 763 isolates and 11 phenotypes (see <a href="" target="_blank">Table 2</a>). Each color and each ellipse symbolize one phylogroup. A Monte-Carlo test (999 replicates) on a linear discriminant analysis confirmed that phenotypic dissimilarities were higher between phylogroups than within groups (<i>P</i><0.001).</p>
