A Grammatical Dictionary of Botanical Latin

apud (prep. + acc.):

1. in the world of, among (plants);

- [Braun; algae] Satis cognitum est, primum, quod oritur, plantae nascentis germen et fundamentum corpus esse uniforme et indifferens, externae formae aeque ac interni contextus differentiis fere nullis, quod adparet apud plantas phanerogamas formatione sacculi embryonalis (*) denique in endospermii corpus mutati, cui apud cryptogamas vasculares proembryon sive prothallium respondet (Braun), it is sufficiently well known, that the first thing that arises [i.e. comes to be] of the nascent plant to be the embryo, and the foundation [i.e. ground-work] to be a body uniform and undifferentiated, and the flesh [i.e. the tissue] of the outer form is to be the same as the internal, with almost no distinctions, which is evident among phanerogamous plants with the formation of the embryonal sac,and finally in the body of the transformed endosperm, to which among vascular cryptogams the proembryo or the prothallium corresponds.

- [algae] numerus cellularum non infra 8, nec ultra 64; dispositio haud raro ad irregularitatem vergit, praesertim in varietate micropora, apud quam cellularum coacervationes ommino deformes, ne planum quidem stricte observantes, cellularum formis monstrosis insignes vidi (Braun), the number of cells is not under 8, nor above 64; the arrangement not rarely tends toward irregularity [i.e. lack of uniformity], especially in the variety ‘micropora,’ by which the aggregations of cells are completely misshapen, not even looking at them rigorously, on the whole, I have seen them to be remarkable in the monstrous shapes of the cells.
