Abstract: The objective of this study was to investigate the differentiation level among 35 populations in which 20 are locals originating from the Tunisian South and 15 introduced from Italy, Australy, France and Morocco with morphologicals traits and mineral composition. The tenors of sodium, potassium and phosphorus were determined. Diversity according to the mineral composition and morphologicals characters inter populations were analyzed by two statistical procedures, Hierarchical classification and Correspondence Factorial Analysis. Its conclude that the local`s populations were adapted at worst conditions in South Tunisian.
