A Grammatical Dictionary of Botanical Latin

 
Germinatio,-onis (s.f.III), abl. sg. germinatione; germinatus,-us (s.m.IV), abl. sg. germinatu: a sprouting forth, budding, germination; a sprout, shoot; “the first act of growth by an embryo plant, connected with the absorption of oxygen and the extrication of carbonic acid. Germination ceases when the latter begins to be decomposed” (Lindley) [> L. germinatio,-onis (s.f.III), “a sprouting forth, budding, germination; a sprout, shoot” (Lewis & Short)].

NOTE: germination (Engl.): “the beginning, process, or result of germinating; the initial development of a spore involving either production of a germ tube or internal breakup; the resumption of growth by the embryo in a seed after planting that involves the development of a young plant from the embryo after a period of dormancy: sprouting; the development of a bud; the production of a pollen tube by a pollen grain; the beginning of growth or development: evolution” (WIII);

- post germinationem, after termination.

- sub germinatione, at (the time of) germination.

- quacumque mador exstitus tum etiam germinatio, wherever moisture occured, then also germination.

- poris germinationis inconspicuis, with germination pores inconspicuous.

- semen interdum in germinatione plumulam ramosam exhibet (B&G), the seed sometimes on germination displays a branched plumule.

- cotyledones crassae, per germinationem carnosae, hypogaeae (B&H), cotyledons thick, throughout germination fleshy, growing underground.

- embryo curvatus inversus, cotyledonibus carnosis crassissimis gibbis conferruminatis per germinationem intra spermodermim [sic] hypogaeis (DeCandolle), embryo crooked, inverted, fleshy, very thick, swollen, joined together, throughout germination developing underground within the spermoderm [i.e. seed coat].

- hi caracteres [sic] etiamsi e partibus minutissimis eruti, optime videntur in seminibus, praecipue ante perfectam maturitatem aut ineunte germinatione (DeCandolle), these characters even if extracted from the smallest parts, are best seen in the seeds, especially before completed maturity or the onset of germination.

 

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