A Grammatical Dictionary of Botanical Latin

 
indeterminatus,-a,-um (part.A): indeterminate, indeterminable, indefinite, undefined, unlimited; “not terminated absolutely, as an inflorescence in which no flower ends the axis of the flower-cluster” (Jackson), often represented by the 'infinity sign,' q.v.; “of indefinite growth, as a theoretical racemose inflorescence” (Fernald 1950); in mycology, “having the edge not well-marked, esp. of fruit-bodies and leaf-spots” (Ainsworth & Bisby); “not terminated definitely; without definite margin or edge” (S&D); opp. determinatus,-a,-um (part.A), q.v.; to be unable to identify or determine the genus, species or other taxonomic category to which a specimen or group of specimens belongs, unidentified; cf. innominatus,-a,-um (part.A), unnamed, unidentified, undetermined; see indefinite; cf. variable;

- pigmenta Y.P.-1, Y.P.-2, et G.P.-1 innominata continens, containing unidentified pigments Y.P.-1, Y.P.-2, G.P.-1 (Stearn).

- inflorescentia spicata, indeterminata, terminalis, inflorescence spicate, indeterminate, terminal.

- calyce nec 10-nervio nec parallele oo-striato (B&H), with the calyx neither 10-nerved nor in a parallel manner [indeterminate]-striate.

- stamina petalis isómera v. duplo plura, rarius oo v. pauciora (B&H), more stamens the same parts as the petals or double, very rarely [indeterminate] or fewer.

- ovarii carpella solitaria v. oo, libera v. basi rarius ad apicem coalita, (B&H), carpels of the ovary solitary or [indeterminate], free or at the base more rarely fused to the apex.

- praeterea fructus in speciebus variis indeterminatis characteres valoris subgenerici paebet (B&H), also the fruit in various undefined species display characters of subgeneric validity.

- N.B. Triumfetta Bartramia (Lin. sp. 633.) indeterminata remanet, cum synonima omnia ad diversas species pertineant (DeCandolle), Triumfetta Bartramia remains undetermined, when all the synonyms may pertain to different species.

NOTE: indeterminate growth in a plant is one in which the axis of the plant is not limited by development of a terminal flower bud or other reproductive structure and so continues to elongate indefinitely, as in racemose inflorescence (WIII); in indeterminate inforescences like racemes, the oldest flowers are borne towards the base and new flowers are produced as the shoot grows, with no predetermined growth limit (Wikipedia): crescentia,-ae (s.f.I) indeterminata; inflorescentia,-ae (s.f.I) indeterminata; cf. determinate growth;

- semper incrementum indeterminatum ostendenti, always showing indeterminate growth.

 

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