	  abstract     = {Due to heavy energy constraints in WSNs clustering is
an efficient way to manage the energy in sensors. There are many
methods already proposed in the area of clustering and research is
still going on to make clustering more energy efficient. In our paper
we are proposing a minimum spanning tree based clustering using
divide and conquer approach. The MST based clustering was first
proposed in 1970’s for large databases. Here we are taking divide and
conquer approach and implementing it for wireless sensor networks
with the constraints attached to the sensor networks. This Divide and
conquer approach is implemented in a way that we don’t have to
construct the whole MST before clustering but we just find the edge
which will be the part of the MST to a corresponding graph and
divide the graph in clusters there itself if that edge from the graph can
be removed judging on certain constraints and hence saving lot of
