Table 5 The overlap of general and medicinal families and genera found in the Southwest Amazon area of Peru and in Mali, as contingency tables, with the significance of each table and whether the odds ratio and Jaccard similarity is significantly greater than the odds ratio and Jaccard similarity for the general flora. Odds ratios and Jaccard similarities that are greater than the corresponding values for the general flora (Tables 2 and 3) are italicized.
