A Grammatical Dictionary of Botanical Latin

 
Current, water (or air) moving in a certain direction; “a tidal or nontidal movement often horizontal of lake or ocean water: drift; condition of flowing: flow, flux” (WIII); currens,-entis (s.f.III, sc. aqua,-ae (s.f.I), a current, a flowing stream, running water; the tide; aestus,-us (s.m.IV), q.v., abl. sg. aestu, the ebb and flow of the sea, tide, a current of water; fluxus,-us (s.m.IV), abl.sg. fluxu, flow, flux, a flowing; a current;

NOTE: currens,-entis (s.f.III) is used as a feminine noun.

- fluxus aeris, a current of air.

- flexuus atque refluxus maris, flow and ebb of the sea (Stearn 1983).

- Hab. ad rupes subemersas, vehementiori fluxu expósitas, it grows on nearly emersed rocks, exposed by a more strenuous current.

- Hab. ad rupes aliquantulum demersas obscuriusculas currentibusque expositas (Agardh), it grows on rocks somewhat sunken in the water, somewhat darkened and exposed to the currents.

- Algae saepissime marinae, Oceanum praeferentes, loca sole expósita at saepe demersiora, sed profunda vix inhabitantes, in sinubus majoribus vehementia fluctuum non nimium expositis sed currentibus percursis praecipue vigentes, fere omnes rupicolae, et apparatu radicali validiori saepe affixae (Agardh),

algae most often marine, preferring the ocean, places exposed to the sun but often more submerged, but hardly inhabiting the depths [i.e. of the sea], in the larger bays not excessively exposed from the vehemence of the currents but especially flourishing in fast-travelling currents, nearly all rock-dwelling, and often attached by a more powerful basal apparatus.

- [algae] Hab. in sinubus tranquillioribus, currentibus tantum expositis, infra limitem maris (Agardh), it dwells in the more tranquil bays, merely exposed to the currents down along the boundary [i.e. the line of the coast] of the sea.

- [algae] Hab. ad rupes parum demersas lapidesque in sinubus minoribus plerumque vehementíori cúrrente percursis (Agardh), it dwells on rocks slightly submerged and stones in the lesser bays usually passed through by a more powerful current.

- [algae] Hab. ad rupes obscuras currentibus expositas infra limitem maris Mediterranei frequenter (Agardh), it grows frequently on shadowy rocks exposed by the currents below [i.e. down along] the boundary [i.e. the line of the coast, coastline] of the Mediterranean Sea.

- [algae] Hab. ad rupes a luce absconditas plerumque abruptas currentibusque expositas in inferiore refluxus limite maris-Mediterranei (Agardh), it grows on rocks hidden from the light and usually steep and exposed by the currents in the lower limit of the [tidal ebb or backflow] of the Mediterranean sea.

 

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