Figure 3

Similarity in postpartum plant use plotted using non-metric multidimensional scaling (Kruskal Stress 0.048). Distances between points are relative similarity. Diamonds represent villages belonging to the Brou ethnic group, squares are Saek and triangles are Kry. Consensus Analysis rejects the hypothesis of one culture for postpartum plant use (eigenvalue ratio 1.816; pseudo-reliability 0.844), but clustering of ethnic groups is evident.
