A Grammatical Dictionary of Botanical Latin

 
Areolation, in mosses, the pattern of cell outlines in a leaf, “the cellular network of a leaf or thallus” (Magill 1990): areolatio,-onis (s.f.III), abl. sg. areolatione, gen. pl. areolationum, abl. pl. areolationibus. In mosses the term rete, retis (s.n.III) was once frequently used; see net; reticulum;

NOTE: taxonomic names of mosses ending in dicty-, dictyo-,-dictyus,-a,-um (adj.A): in Gk. comp. -networked, reticulated, usually refer to characteristics of the areolation: Cyclodictyon, a moss, “The name was applied in reference to an open areolation of large, short ("rounded") leaf cells" (C&A); [moss] Cynodontium porphyrodictyon, with a purple areolation, or cell network;

- (moss) Areolatio duplex est, parenchymatica et prosenchymatica. Cellulae parenchymaticae illae sunt, quarum plana horizontalia supraposita sunt, dum cellularum prosenchymaticarum plana in apices plus minus perpendiculares producuntur (Mueller): the areolation is double, parenchymatic and prosenchymatic. Parenchymatic cells are those of which are flat, horizontal, superimposed, while [those] of the prosenchymatic cells] are flat, in the apices more or less perpendicular.

- areolatione et form foliorum magis ad Eupilotricha plantae accedentes, plants approaching more to the Eupilotricha by the areolation and shape of the leaves.

- (moss) areolatione in parte basilari laxa, e cellulis magnis rectangularibus hyalinis (DozyMoeken), with the areolation in the basal part lax, from large, rectangular, hyaline cells.

- [mosses] areolatione in toto limbo et media baseos [gen.sg.] vaginantis parte compacta (DozyMoek), with the areolation on the entire limb and the middle part of the sheathing base compact.

- (moss) areolatione in toto limbo et media baseos vaginantis parte compacta, neque uti in baseos alis ex unico strato conflata (DozyMoek), with the areolation on the whole limb and the middle part of the sheathing base compact, not, as in the wings [i.e. alar regions] of the base united into a single layer.

- areolatione marginali e cellulis uniserialibus, pellucidis, linearibus (DozyMoek), with the marginal areolation [composed] of cells in one row, pellucid, linear.

 

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