A Grammatical Dictionary of Botanical Latin

 
Divum,-i (s.n.II), abl. sg. divo: the open sky; = sub Jove, in the open air; see Jovis,-is (s.m.III); related to Divus,-i (s.m.II), dius,-i (s.m.II), diva,-ae (s.f.I), dia,-ae (s.f.I), a god or goddess, a deity (of the sky); see sky;

- sub divo, sub dio; in divo, in dio: in the open air, under the open sky.

- [fungus] semel, ineunte Januario , in pyris sub dio projectis (S&A), one time, January coming in, on a pear tree out-stretched under the open sky.

- [fungus] non tantum hyemalis est et cellaris; sed et aestivalis sub dio in radicibus caulibusque Brassicae siccis crebra ac gregaria provenit (S&A), not only is it associated with winter and with cellars; but it appears also with summer under the open sky dense and colonial [i.e. clustered] on dried roots and stems of Brassica.

- [fungus] sub dio in regionibus nostris, sed constanter atmosphaera tepente (S&A), under the open sky in our regions, but constantly in a tepid atmosphere.

- [Boletus: fungus] substantia item ferruginea, sicca, in fungo recente laxiuscula mollis fomentaria; deinde indurata per totam hyemem et ultra sub dio persistit (S&A), the substance, moreover, is rust-red, dry, in the fresh fungus somewhat loose, soft, tinder-like; finally hardened, it persists throughout all winter and beyond under the open sky.

- [fungus] sub dio in regionibus nostris, sed constanter atmosphaera tepente (S&A), under the open sky in our regions, but constantly in a tepid atmosphere.

- (v. v. sub dio in hortis angl. et nunc Genev.) (DeCandolle), vidi vivam, “I have (seen) it in the living state” in the open air in the gardens of England [Angliae] and presently of Geneva [Switzerland].

- (v. v. in h. par. sub dio) (DeCandolle), [v.v.= vidi vivam, “I have (seen) it in the living state;” in the [botanical] garden [h.[=horto] par. [Parisii, Paris (France)], in the botanical garden of Paris in the open air [i.e. not in a greenhouse].

- folia autumno decidua hyemem Europae australis sub dio laete fert (DeCandolle), the leaves deciduous in autumn, it vigorously endures the winter of southern Europe under the open sky [i.e. unprotected].

NOTE: in the context of botanical gardens, ‘in dio’ may indicate the species is capable of being grown outside of the greenhouses, that is, it is ‘hardy;’ also that it is ‘unprotected.’

NOTE: ‘the spelling ‘dio’ is an alternative to ‘divo’ (ablative sg.).

 

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