A Grammatical Dictionary of Botanical Latin

 
dumosus,-a,-um (adj.A): full of thorn-bushes; of (thorny) bushy habit or aspect; “full of bushes, of shrubby aspect” (Jackson); brushy, full of brush or shrubs;

- suffrutex erectus, ramosus, dumosus, glaber, caulibus ramisque teretibus domum albis (B&H), erect, branchy, bushy, smooth subshrub, with stems and branches round, ending up white.

- frútices dumosi, spinis stipularibus subulatis armati (B&H), thorny shrubs, armed with stipular subulate spines.

- provenit species elegans locis elatis siccioribus apricis dumosisve (S&A), an elegant species coming forth in lofty places, more dry, open or in spiney thickets.

- loca diligit affinium more aprica graminosa, pascua, prata, versuras: at in dumosis quoque umbrosis hinc illinc invenitur, antecedenti contemporalis (S&A), it prefers, according to the ways of its relations, open, grassy places, pastures, meadows, ploughed places: and also in shady spiney thickets here and there it is found during the same time as the preceding.

- raro provenit in montibus rupestribus dumosis ad flumen Burnett (F. Mueller), it rarely occurs in spiny-shrubby rocky [i.e. steep] mountains on the river Burnett.

- in pratis dumosis prope Providence Hill et Macadam Range (F. Mueller), in spiny-shrubby meadows near Providence Hill and the Macadam Range.

- in collibus dumosis ad montem West Mount Barren (F. Mueller), in spiny-shrubby hills [i.e. uplands] on West Mount Barren mountain.

- Beatsonia portulacifolia foliis subrotundis carnosis glabris, caule fruticoso dumoso (DeCandolle), with the leaves nearly rounded, fleshy, smooth, with the stem shrubby, thorny.

- [fungi] speciem forma constantissimn, situ et colore a praecedente affatim diversam in petiolis nervisque foliorum putrido - siccorum Fraxini locis dumosis umbrosis legimus (S&A), we have found the species in form most constant [i.e. invariable], quite different in situation and color from the preceeding on the petioles and veins of rotten-dried leaves of Fraxinus in brushy shady places.

Aster dumosus L., ‘bushy.’ Note that A. subdumosus means "somewhat like A. dumosus" not “somewhat bushy;” Pitavia dumosa; Helianthemum dumosum, “bushy” (Fernald 1950) a species forming loosely ascending to depressed mounds of nearly horizontally branching stems (Fernald 1950).

 

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