A Grammatical Dictionary of Botanical Latin

 
Internode, “the space which intervenes between two nodes” (Lindley); “the portion of a stem or other structure between two nodes” (Fernald 1950): internodium,-ii (sn.II), abl. sg. internodio, nom. & acc. pl. internodia, dat.& abl. pl. internodiis (Jackson; also Stearn);

- internodia ramulis 2-5 plo longiora, internodes than the branchlets 2-5 times longer (Stearn).

- caules ad internodia radicantes, stems at internodes rooting (Stearn).

- internodiis brevibus, with short internodes; internodia brevia, the internodes short.

- caules ad internodia cavi, sub internodiis radicantes, stems at the internodes hollow, rooting below the internodes.

- inflorescentiis ad internodia dispositis, with the inflorescences arranged at the internodes.

- caulibus geniculatis, internodiis arcuatis folio duplo longioribus (DeCandolle), with the stems geniculate, with the internodes arcuate, two times longer than the leaf.

- caule basi folioso internodiis approximatis intercepto (DeCandolle), with the stem leafy at the base interrupted by the internodes close together.

- foliis maximis crassiusculis internodiis longioribus (DeCandolle), with the largest leaves somewhat thicker, longer than the internodes.

Merithallus,-i (s.m.II), abl. sg. merithallo: a merithal, “(obsol.) an internode” (Lindley); “an internode” (Jackson);

- [lichen] podetia altitudinis 12-14 centimetrorum, e singulis superpositis (vel quasi merithallis) altit. circa 10-12 millim., crassit. 1-2 millim. constantia (Nyl.), the podetia of the altitude of 12-14 centimeters, composed of superimposed individuals (or as if internodes) around 10-12 mm in height, 1-2 mm. in thickness.

NOTE: node: that part of a stem from which a leaf arises.

NOTE: the adjective internodal is internodalis,-e (adj.B), according to Jackson, not internodialis,-e (adj.B).

 

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