Alps, high mountains; “the high mountains of Switzerland, the Alps, unknown to the Romans, in their whole extent until the time of Augustus” (Lewis & Short): Alpes (plural f. III), gen.pl. Alpium, acc. pl. Alpes, dat. & abl. pl. Alpibus (rarely in the singular: Alpis,-is (s.f.III);

- ultra Alpes, beyond (= on the far side of) the Alps, ultra = prep. + acc.)

- ex Alpibus Europea, from the Alps of Europe.

- [Pisum,-i L. (s.m.II] species 2, altera diu culta in regione Mediterranea et Asia occidentali spontanea sed saepe inquilina, altera Tauri alpium incola (B&H), species 2, one cultivated for a long time in the Mediterranean region and spontaneous in western Asia but often introduced, the other an inhabitant of the high mountains of Taurus.

- inter scopulos et fissuras rupium prope nives perpetuas in Alpibus (DeCandolle), among the cliffs and fissures of rocks near perpetual snow in the Alps.

- ex Alpibus ad Ispahan Persiae caeterum simillima, differt tantum planta Hispanica fructibus minoribus (Boissier), from the Alps at Ispahan in Persia otherwise most similar, yet the Spanish plant differs by the smaller fruits.

- in paludosis turfosis planitierum usque ad alpes totius Europae (Mueller) in swampy, peaty [places] from the plains to the high mountains of all Europe.

- locis uliginosis et paludosis e planitie ad alpes sociis muscis aliis palustribus (Jaeg.Sauer.), in marshy and peaty places from the plains to the high mountains in association with other boggy mosses.

- [moss] ad saxa in terra humida, locis graminosis in pratis uliginosis in scaturiginibus totius fere orbis terrarum e regione campestri ad alpes [Jaeg. & Sauer),on stones in moist soil, grassy places, in wet meadows, in the bubbling water of almost the entire circle of lands from plains region to the high mountains.

- [moss] per totum alpium tractum Europae centralis, Scotiae et Scandinaviae, nusquam tamen copiose, et praecipue in stercore animali (C. Mueller), throughout the whole of the alps region of central Europe, of Scotland and Scandinavia, yet nowhere abundantly, and primarily on animal dung.

 

A work in progress, presently with preliminary A through R, and S, and with S (in part) through Z essentially completed.
