DOI : 10.29228/jrp.514 Mount Nemrut which was inscribed in world heritage list of UNESCO has been householder of different civilizations and cultures over centuries. It is in the South-East part of Turkey and also a part of Eastern Taurus Mountain range. The aim of this study is to document the uses of medicinal plants used in the villages around Nemrut mountain and provide a basic ethnopharmacological knowledge. A 2-year field study had been carried out in 18 villages (2012-2013). Information was obtained from personal conversations and guided fieldtrips with 44 informants which are selected especially as old and traditional healers of villages. Also, Informant Consensus Factor (FIC) of ailments and the use values (UV) of plants were calculated. Data on medicinal uses of 82 taxa, belonging to 36 botanical families, were obtained and presented. According to the calculation mode on the basis of the use value Pistacia terebinthus L. (0.34), Mentha longifolia subsp. typhoides (Briq.) Harley (0.3) was reported to be the highest use value. Dermatological disorders (abscess, wound healing etc.) and diseases of musculoskeletal system and connective tissue (rheumatism, etc) scored the highest FIC values (0.5). Alcea apterocarpa, Brunnera orientalis, Pastinaca sativa subsp. urens and Pistacia terebinthus gall for wound healing, Quercus brantii gall for anti-inflammatory, Andrachne telephioides for antiviral, Tanacetum argenteum subsp. argenteum for CNC related activities are suggested as good candidates for further pharmacological researches.
