is an option for DendrogramPlot that specifies the fusion levels at which to truncate the dendrogram.


  • To use TruncateDendrogram, you first need to load the Hierarchical Clustering Package using Needs["HierarchicalClustering`"].
  • Valid settings are All, positive integers, or a list of two positive integers. The integers should be no larger than the number of clusters. With the default setting All, no truncation is performed.
  • The setting TruncateDendrogram->n truncates clusters with the smallest fusion levels so that n leaves remain.
  • The setting TruncateDendrogram->{m,n} will display only the m through n fusion levels.
