A Grammatical Dictionary of Botanical Latin

 
lymphaticus,-a,-um (adj.A) “of, relating to, or produced by lymph, lymphoid tissue, or lymphocytes” (WIII) [> L. lymphaticus,-a,-um (adj.A): most classical words associated with ‘lymph’ indicate frenzy, panic, crazed, deranged]; see lympha,-ae (s.f.I);

- [PLANTAE VASCULARES seu COTYLEDONEAE] Plantae contextu celluloso vasisque lymphaticis constantes (DeCandolle), plants composed of cellulose tissue and lymphatic [i.e. sap] vessels.

“Lymphatic vessels (vasa lymphatica), are found upon the epidermis (§ 232). They are extremely delicate, run singly, and are reticularly united. The circle or quadrate which is described on these vessels, has usually in its centre an aperture, which, however, has no connexion with the vessels, as will be shown in the sequel. The reticular form varies greatly in vegetables. It is constantly found in every species, and in a few, is subject to some alterations” [Willdenow].

[Epidermal hairs] “The ordinary hairs above described are either empty, or they contain fluid of a watery nature, which may be colourless or coloured. Such have been therefore termed by some botanists lymphatic hairs, to distinguish them from other hair-like appendages which are filled with special secretions, and hence have been called glandular hairs” (Bentley).

 

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