The informants were interviewed individually in the local Amharic language. Semistructured interviews included questions about name, age, gender, level of education, occupation, religion, nationality, District, Kebele, and peasant association of each informant. All semistructured interviews were followed by independent walk-in-the-woods exercises to pave a way for a detailed discussion with the informants. The informants were asked about local names, habitats, use diversities, parts used, collecting households, condition of plant part used (fresh/dried), ingredients used, mode of preparation, the threats, and traditional conservation practices of medicinal plants [19]. The informants were also asked about overall use values, diseases treated, methods of remedy preparation, dosage prescriptions and routes of remedy administration, other ingredients, source of knowledge about medicinal plants, and method of indigenous knowledge transfer as stated in [20].
