A Grammatical Dictionary of Botanical Latin

 
Amphitropous, [[DELETE hemianatropous,]] i.e. with the ovule bent so that both ends are near each other; ‘having the ovule inverted but with the attachment near the middle of one side’ (WIII); amphitropal (Eng.adj.) “when an ovule is attached by its middle, so that the two ends are equidistant from the point of insertion” (Lindley); “(ovule or seed). Half-inverted and straight, with the hilum lateral” (Fernald 1950): amphitropicus,-a,-um (adj.A), amphitropus,-a,-um (adj.A); [[DELETE hemianatropicus,-a,-um (adj.A), hemianatropus,-a,-um (adj.A);]] see anatropous, campylotropous, orthotropous; see -tropic, -tropous, -tropal;

- ovarii carpellum 1, excentricum, ovulis ∞ v. 1-2, angulo interiori affxis, amphitropis v. anatropis (B&H), the carpel of the ovary 1, off-center, with the ovules [infinite] or 1-2, attached to the interio angle, amphitropous or anatropous.

- ovula in sutura ventrali 2 v. ∞, anatropa v. fere amphitropa, horizontalia raphe laterali, v. rarius a basi adscendentia raphe ventrali (B&H), ovules in the ventral suture 2 or indeterminate, anatropous or almost amphitropous, horizontal with the raphe lateral, or more rarely ascending from the base with the raphe ventral.

- ovula indefinita, rarius pauca, secus placentas parietalia v. ad basin ovarii inserta, amphitropa v. campylotropa (B&H), ovules indefinite [i.e. in number], rarely few, parietal along the placentas or inserted at the base of the ovary, amphitropous or campylotropous.

- ovula in loculis 2-0O, rarius solitaria, nunc erecta v. horizontalia et anatropa, nunc péndula anatropa v. campylotropa, nunc lateraliter affixa et amphitropa, micropyle superà v. infera (B&H), ovules in locules 2- [indefinite], more rarely solitary, sometimes erect or horizontal and anatropous, sometimes pendulous, anatropous or campylotropous, sometimes laterally attached and amphitropous, with the micropyle above or below.

NOTE: hemianatropicus,-a,-um (adj.A), hemianatropus,-a,-um (adj.A): > “Gk. ana, up + tropE, a turn; half-anatropous, the ovule being partially bent back, half the raphe free; hemitropous, amphitropous” (Jackson).
amphitropous, amphitropicous, in or with two manners (as in a hepatic, with two different kinds of phyllotaxis, the ventral representing one genus, the dorsal another): amphitropicus,-a,-um (adj.A), amphitropus,-a,-um (adj.A).

 

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