The aim of this study was the morphometric characterization of 8 bean accessions (vicia faba L) in different localities in the wilaya of Tlemcen, we studied 8 agromorphological characters, were the objects of a statistical study by the software R. Phenotypic diversity was determined by the Shannon-Weaver diversity index (H ') at different levels. The estimated H showed high phenotypic variability for different traits with an average H of 0.63. The results of the Multiple Correspondence Analysis (PCA) and the Hierarchical Classification (CAH) showed a clear distinction between the accessions.
