rect.hclust(clust, h = 0.65)

Is that what you wanted?

Subject: [R] help with hclust and cutree


I would like to cut a hclust tree into several groups at a specific
similarity. I assume this can be achieved by specifying the "h" argument
with the specified similarity, e.g.:


Now, I would like to draw rectangles around the branches of the
dendrogram highlighting the corresponding clusters, as is done by the
function rect.hclust(). How can I achieve this with the ouput of cutree?

I would appreciate your help!
