Dear friends

I reformulate the question. I think I did not formulate it properly.

I have some data on some sites. I can define a dissimilarity between each pair 
of sites. Using this dissimilarity, I have clustered the sites using the 
hclust algorithm, with method ward. I then obtain 48 clusters, by cutting the 
tree using cutree with k=48. 

I would now like to estimate the distance between each pair of the 48 
resulting clusters. I have read the documentation, but I cannot find a 

Any clue on how I can do that?

This is a snippet of the code:
