A Grammatical Dictionary of Botanical Latin

 
Imber, gen. sg. imbris (s.m.III), acc. sg. imbrem, abl. sg. imbre, nom & acc. pl. imbres, gen. pl. imbrium, dat & abl. pl. imbribus: rain, heavy or violent rain, a rain-storm, shower of rain, pelting or pouring rain; cf. pluvia,-ae (s.f.I), a gentle rain; see rain;

- imber magnus (adj.A), abl. sg. imbre magno, heavy rain.

- imber serotina, the later rainy season.

- [moss] sane in illis regionibus, campi depressi marique propiores tractus muscos nullos educare possunt, at in locis editioribus, quae frigidiore coelo crebrioribusque [imbribus] fruantur successu haud infelici quaerentur (Brid.), obviously in those regions, low plains and tracts [of land] nearer to the sea, are able to bring forth no mosses [i.e. are not capable of supporting any mosses], but in higher situations, which enjoy a colder climate and more frequent [rains], they achieve a not unhappy success.

- [Physarum; a slimemold; Mycetozoa] intra hortorum rejectamenta aliosve acervos (Trichospermorum in universum ditissimos) in foliis, stipulis, ramulis etc. suffocatis minime infrequens post imbres obvius fuit fungillus (S&A), the fungillus [i.e. slimemold] was encountered, being the least infrequent after heavy rains among the litter of gardens and other heaps [i.e. of things] (the richest, as a whole, [being heaps of] of Trichosperma [Malvaceae]) on smothered leaves, stubble, branchlets, etc.

 

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