A Grammatical Dictionary of Botanical Latin

 
decompound, multiply compounded, more than once-compounded or divided, e.g. the leaflets again divided: decompositus,-a,-um (part.A); cf. ‘compound,’ q.v., similar parts aggregated into a common whole (Jackson), “composed of 2 or more similar parts united into one whole, as in a compound leaf, one that is divided into separate leaflets” (Fernald 1950);

- plerumque tota planta pinnatim decomposita, usually the entire plant pinnately decompound.

- folia ternatim decomposita, caulina alterna v. summa subopposita v. 0 (B&H), leaves ternately decompound, the cauline alternate or the highest ones nearly opposite or none.

- folia ternatim subpinnatimve decomposita, leaves ternately or subpinnately decompound.

- folia alterna, ampla, pinnatim dissecta v. decomposita(B&H), leaves alternate, large, pinnately dissected or decompound.

- folia penninervia, v. pinnatisecta, v. pinnatim 2-3-ternata, v. decomposita (B&H), leaves pinnately nerved, or pinnately [cut to the base), or pinnately 2-3-ternate [2-3 times cut into threes], or decompound [divided at even greater multiples].

- folia raro integra, saepius multisecta v. pinnatim decomposita.(B&H), leaves rarely entire, more often [multiply divided to the base] or pinnately decompound [pinnately divided several times].

- folia simplicia, 3-foliolata, pinnata v. decomposita, leaves undivided, 3-foliolate, pinnate or decompound [divided multiple times].

- pedunculi oppositifolii, nunquam cirriferi, cymoso-decompositi (B&H), peduncles with opposite leaves, never cirriferous, cymosely- multiply compound.

- folia alterna, exstipulata, biternata v. decomposita (B&H), leaves alternate, lacking stipules, twice-ternate [divided into threes] or decompound [divided many times].

- folia simplicia v. saepius digitatim. v. pinnatim composita, rarissime subdecomposita' (B&H), leaves undivided or more often digitately or pinnately compound, very rarely nearly multiply compounded.

supradecompound, i.e. so many times divided that the degree of division is not readily evident: supradecompositus,-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.
