Informant consensus factor (ICF) was computed to measure the level of homogeneity of the information collected and overall agreement on the treatment of specific health disorder category and to identify potential medicinal plant species used for the traditional treatment of human disease categories in the two districts by using the method found in [18]. During information gathering, the informants were contacted three times for the same ideas to determine the reliability of information recorded during the first interview, and the information that was repeated in the same manner by the informants at three contact times was recorded as stated in [19]. ICF was computed as follows: ICF = Nur–Nt/(Nur–1), where Nur is the number of use reports from informants for a particular plant use category, Nt is the number of species that is used for that plant use category for all informants. ICF values range between 0 and 1, where “1” shows the highest level of informant consent [18].
