A Grammatical Dictionary of Botanical Latin

 
Indicium,-ii (s.n.II), abl. sg. indicio: usually with objective genitive, ‘a mark to show or indicate (a fact, quality, etc.), a sign, trace, indication, evidence; (in medicine), an indication (of symptoms); cf. nota,-ae (s.f.I); (as a token or mark of appreciation): expression, memento, demonstration; see ‘mark;’

- multa in omni parte Athenarum sunt indicia summorum virorum, there are many signs in every part of Athens of the best of men.

- flos est pleni veris indicium, [the flower is the mark of full [i.e. advanced] spring.

- flammae latentis indicium rubor est, [the color] red is an indication of hidden [flaming] fever].

- Anthemides omnes hucusque detecti, ad species 3 rediguntur, ex indicio naturae; singula, propri[o] charactere distinguantur (Necker), all of the [species] of Anthemis up to now discovered, are diminished to 3 species, according to the evidence of nature: [each and every one] may be distinguished by its own special character.

- [BARTRAMIA HALLERIANA; moss] in memoriam BARTRAMI, coloni curiosi in Pensylvania, qui inde optimo Dillenio olim varias species cryptogamas LINN. procuravit, genericum nomen condidi; triviale vero indicio primi evulgatoris ipsius hujus speciei (Hedwig), I have based the generic name in memory of Bartram, an inquisitive colonist in Pensylvania, who once procured from there for the most honorable Dillenius various cryptogamic species of Linnaeus; [I have based] the trivial [name, i.e. the epithet] for a genuine memento of the first publisher himself of this species. [The Swiss Albrecht von Haller resisted the use of the binomial nomenclature of Linnaeus]

- STIGMA demum apertum et stylus, impraegnatione peracta, canalem deferentem eleganter rutilantem superius, inferius rubrum offerunt, qui color et summitatem ovarii perfucat, manifesto praegressi operis indicio (Hedwig), they reveal the stigma thereafter open, and the style, when the impregnation [i.e. fertilization] is completed, rendering the upper canal elegantly reddish-orange, the lower red, which thoroughly stains red the color of the summit of the ovary, with a clear token of the action brought forward.

 

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