A Grammatical Dictionary of Botanical Latin

 
Enchiridium,-ii (s.n.II), abl. sg. enchiridio: a handbook (manual), a book that can be carried in the hand for reference; a concise reference book providing specific information about a subject or location [> Gk. cheir (s.f.I), the hand (> Gk. encheiridion (s.n.II), a hand-knife, dagger; a handle; a manual, handbook, a reference book; a tool, implement; a title of works by Epictetus and others (Liddell & Scott),; the Enchiridion of Epictetus is a summary of theoretical and applied Stoicism; > Gk. en, ‘in’ + cheir (s.f.I), the hand + (dim.) -idion].

- in enchiridiis physiologicis vulgo solum duos allatos videmus modos, quibus cellulae augentur scilcet: 1. divisione cellulari simplici (qui modus est longe frequentissimus), cellula singula se septo in binas et dein plures dividente, et 2. formatione cellularum intra cellulam matricalem (quod observatur ex. gr. in ortu pollinis, atque sporarum intra thecas apud Cryptogamas); in the physiological references we commonly see only two ways reported by which cells are multiplied, namely: 1. by simple cellular division (which mode is by far the most frequent), with the individual cell dividing itself by a septum [i.e. partition] into two, and then into many, and 2. by the formation of cells within the mother cell, which is observed for example in the origin of pollen, and also of the spores within the thecas among the Cryptogams.

 

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