Comparison of differentiation of 12 populations of wild soybean (Glycine soja Sieb. & Zucc.) collected from Japan and South Korea based on isozymes and quantitative traits were made. The protein and quantitative phenograms were compared for congruence by calculating distortion coefficients. In general, the concordance of population differentiation among the 12 populations was not high, but it is remarkable that the population distance estimated on the basis of such a small number of protein loci showed a significant correlation with the distance estimated by phenological and agronomic characters. If many more protein loci were included, higher congruence may be observed.
