A Grammatical Dictionary of Botanical Latin

 
Fascicle, “when several similar things proceed from a common point, as the leaves of the Larch [Larix], or the tubers of a Dahlia” (Lindley); a fascicle, bundle, cluster, grouping of branches, flowers, pedicels, roots, hairs, etc., “e.g. branches in Sphagnum” (Magill 1990); in mycology, a little group or bundle” (Ainsworth & Bisby); 'a small bundle, packet; bunch of flowers, nosegay; “one of the divisions of a book [or exsiccata, q.v.] pupblished in parts - called also fascicule” (WIII): fasciculus,-i (s.m.II), abl. sg. fasciculo, nom. pl. fasciculi, acc. pl. fasciculos, dat. & abl. pl. fasciculis [> L. fascis, gen. sg. fascis (s.m.III) 'a bundle of wood, twigs, straw, a fagot; a packet, parcel']; see bundle; see fastigiatus,-a,-um (part.A); see tuft; see phalanges (pl. f. III), a group of body in close formation; bundles of stamens;

- inflorescentia ad fasciculum simplicem reducta, inflorescence to a simple cluster reduced.

- fasciculi brevisimi vix ad 1 millimetrum longi, in vivo purpureo-sanguinei (fide Ehrenb.), in speciminibus [sic] siccis griseo-virides, fascicles very short scarcely 1 mm. long in a living state purple-blood-red (according to Ehrenberg), in dried specimens gray-green (Stearn).

- fasciculus vasorum, bundle of vessels [> L. vas, vasis, q.v.].

- trichomata in fasciculos squamuliformes discretos libere natantes aggregata, trichomes in fascicles scale-like separate freely swimming clustered together (Stearn).

- fasciculi ramealis ramis 2 patentibus atque 2-3 pendentibus instructi, branch fascicles provided with 2 spreading and 2-3 pendent branches.

- rasciculi ramorum e ramis 2-3 compositi, fascicles of branches

formed from 2 or 3 branches.

- floribus in fasciculos 2-floros dispositis, with the flowers arranged in 2-flowered fascicles.

- dichasia in fasciculos axillares disposita, dichasia arranged in axillary clusters.

- haec structura praecipue evidens est in cellulis magnis Confervae melagonii, C. crassee, etc., in quibus fibrae in fasciculos nonnullos principales contorquentur (Agardh), this structure is expecially evident in the large cells of Conferva melagonii, C. crassae, etc., in which.the fibers are twisted into several main fascicles.

- et ex his denuo in fibras plus minus simplices, spatia inter fasciculos relicta implentes, separantur (Agardh), and from these once more are separated into more or less simple [i.e. unbranched] fibers, filling the space left between the fascicles.

NOTE: not to be confused with fascia,-ae (s.f.I): 'bandage, band, girdle; a cross-band, as of color,' although the two words are semantically related.

 

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