A Grammatical Dictionary of Botanical Latin

 
habens,-entis (part.B): having, possessing; to hold in the mind, consider, [‘take for,’ ‘taken for’ with pro + abl.] [> L. habeo, habui, habitum, 2. to have] + object acc.; syn. tenens, q.v.; see holding; cf. habitus,-a,-um (part.A);

habeo, 1st. pers. sg. pres. indic. act., ‘I have; I consider;’

habuimus, first-person plural perfect active indicative; we have, considered; we have possessed;

1. have, possess:

- optime tamen hic locum habeat ob podetia foramina praebentia et apothecia minuta marginata (Nyl.), however it may here hold a place best due to the podetia displaying foramina and the apothecia very small, bordered.

- [fungi] in ligno sicco exesissimo alneo subcorticalem habuimus unico loco (Moholzer Haide) speciem raram (S&A), we have had it from a single place beneath the bark, a rare species, on dry completely eaten away alder wood.

- legumen semina 6-8 habens, legume having 6-8 seeds.

- caule alas 4 habente, with the stem having four wings.

- petiolis stipulos laciniatos habentibus, with the petioles having laciniate stipules.

- F. media Lois, habet pedicellos tenuiores, sepala lanceolata minima (Boissier), [Fumaria] media Lois, has thinner pedicels, the lanceolate sepals very small.

- Var. [Beta]. habet omnino habitum Ar. tetraquetrae cum qua crescit (Boissier), variety [Beta] has all over the habit of Arenaria tetraquetra, with which it grows.

2. consider, take for; cf. sumptus,-a,-um (part.A) + pro + abl.; note gerundive: habendus,-a,-um (adj.A);

- [fungi] totum aliquando habuimus fungum rostris patulis flexuosis pubescentibus nigris, veluti spinulis, horrentem (S&A), the whole we have formerly considered a fungus bristling with spreading, flexuose pubescent, [shining] black beaks, like spinules.

- palea 0 nisi pro palea glumam summam 1-nervem v. carinatam habes (B&H), palea none unless you take the highest glume, 1-nerved or carinate, for a palea.

- generis divisiones multo melius pro sectionibus quam pro generibus distinctis habendae videntur (B&H), the divisions of the genus seem much better to be held for sections than for distinct genera.

- Genus Achimeni valde affine, et forte melius pro sections habendum (B&H), the genus is strongly related to Achimenes, and perhaps it should be better having it for a section.

- Richard plantam non vidit et genus condidit ad descriptionem Linnaei, qui stylorum ramos seu stigmata pro antheris habuit (B&H), Richard did not see the plant and founded the genus on a description of Linnaeus, who took the branches of the styles or the stigmas for anthers.

- cum glochidibus olim pro stylis habitis (Swartz), with the hooked bristles formerly taken for the styles.

- simillima A. sylvestri et forsan pro hujus mera variatate habenda (DeCandolle), very similar to A. sylvestris and perhaps should be taken for a genuine variety of this.

- calyptram, ab auctoribus consociatis Hooker et Greville calymperoideam basi thecam amplectentem et lateraliter fissam deliniatam, etsi nobis haud visam, Syrrhopodontis dimidiatam habemus (Mueller), the calymperoid calyptra illustrated by the [co-]authors Hooker and Greville, enfolding the theca and laterally split, I am considering the dimidiate [calyptra] of Syrrhopodon, even if not seen by us [i.e. by me].

NOTE: habitus,-a,-um (part.A): considered, considered [to be], taken [for], pro + abl.].

 

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