Rahman, F. Ijaz, Z. Iqbal, A. Afzal, N. Ali, M. Afzal, M.A. Khan, S. Muhammad, G. Qadir, M. Asif, 2016) . This article describes how the local community of Manoor Valley practices cultural / traditional knowledge for dental problems. For the recorded data of 25 medicinal plants, six quantitative ethnomedicinal statistical approaches / equations were used. Out of these indices, four were used to measure the most imported and cited medicinal plant species while two for the comparative analysis to evaluate the novelty of work.

Experimental design, materials and methods Field surveys were arranged for collection and documentation of medicinal plants of Manoor valley during 2015. Through structured questionnaire, a total of 71 local inhabitants were interviewed randomly. Recorded data were analyzed by using quantitative ethnomedicinal statistical indices/equations (Fig. 2) i.e. use value (UVi), relative frequency citations (RFCs), fidelity level index (FL%) and consensus index (CI%) . For novel uses all plants were thoroughly checked with previously published articles on the same disorder and analyzed through Jaccard index (JI) and Sorensen׳s similarity index (QS) . Comprehensive discussion and interpretation on these indices and comparative analyses with previous published articles/literature through JI and QS can be found in . Conflict of Interest The authors declare that they have no conflict of interests. Acknowledgements This dataset is the part of PhD work of I.U. Rahman.
