A Grammatical Dictionary of Botanical Latin

 
Nix (s.f.III) gen.sg. nivis, abl.sg. nive: snow; cf. chion-, chiono-, in Gk. comp.

Perpetual or unmelting snows: nives aeternae, nives perpetuae;

- ad nives deliquescentes, at the melting snows.

- ad limites nivium aeternarum extensae, extended to the limits of perpetual snows.

- specimina quae in foliis Pteridis humi prostratis obtectis a nive vixdum soluta putrefactis semel legimus; ineunte Aprili (S&A), specimens which we collected one time, on the putrefied leaves of Pteris [a fern] prostrate on the ground covered by scarcely melted snow; at the onset of April.

- species ad 6, in uliginosis montium altiorum Andium Americae australis vigentes, usque ad limites nivium aeternarum extensae (B&H), species to 6, in the wet places of the higher mountains of the Andes of South America flourishing, extended up to the limits of perpetual snow.

- inter scopulos et fissuras rupium prope nives perpetuas in Alpibus (DeCandolle), among the cliffs and fissures of rocks near perpetual snow in the Alps.

- ad radices montis perpetua nive obtecti (Hooker), at the roots of a mountain covered with perpetual snow.

- E planitiebus Europaeis (rarissime tamen) usque ad nives aeternas utriusque hemispbaerae ascendentes, zonas frigidas autem praeferentes et rupium incolae (Mueller), from the European plains (however, very rarely) up to eternal snows arising in both hemispheres, frigid zones, however, prefering and a dweller on rocks.

- in cinerib. vulcanic. ad nives aeternas (Mueller), in the volcanic [vulcanicis] ashes [cineribus] in eternal snow.

- praeprimis in nivium regione viget (Mueller), it flourishes especially in the region of snows.

- Ad saxa et terram humidam in locis paludosis e planitiebus usque ad nives alpium ascendens per totam Europam haud vulgare occurrit (Mueller), hardly common, it occurs on stones and moist earth in swampy places from the plains ascending up to the snows of the Alps throughout all Europe.

 

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