Periphery = circumference, = linea,-ae (s.f.I) circumcurrens (part.B), abl. sg. linea circumcurrente: periphery, circumference: a surrounding area or space, a boundary line or outside surface, especially of a rounded object (WIII): peripheria,-ae (s.f.I), abl. sg. peripheria [> Gk. peri-, around + pherein, to bear = L. circum- + fero, to bear around]; see circumference;

- (algae) Sphaerosporae sphaericae aut oblongae (in paucioribus generibus tantum notae), morphosi cellularum peripheriae formatae, in sporas 4 divisione triangula, zonata aut cruciata divisae (Agardh), the sphaerospores either spherical or oblong (only known in the smaller genera), formed by a manner of development of the periphery of the cells, divided into 4 spores by a triangular, concentric or cruciate [i.e. in a cross-wise] division.

- vacuolis contractilibus numerosis per totam cellulae peripheriam sparsis, with contractile vacuoles numerous over the whole circumference of the cell dispersed (Stearn 1983).

- trunco usque ad 1 m. diametro, 3 m. peripheria, with the trunk to 1 meter in diameter, 3 meters in circumference.

- flosculi staminiferi, tubulati, 1-sepali, ad peripheriam floris, irregulares (Necker), florets staminiferous nearly tubular, 1-sepaled, on the periphery of the flower, irregular.

- flosculi staminiferi, ad circuitum floris, irregulares (Necker), the staminiferous florets, on the periphery of the flower, irregular.

- (algae) medium frondis occupatur filis articulatis longitudinalibus simplicibus, superne versus peripheriam arcuatim excurrentibus crassioribus (Agardh), the middle of the frond is occupied by longitudinal [i.e. along the axis] jointed, undivided filaments, above [i.e. distally] toward the periphery running out in the manner of a bow, thicker.

- Figuram, situm, insertionem, superficiem (utraque parte), expansionem, circuitum s. peripheriam,tandem simplicitatem vel compositionem foliorum (Necker), the shape, site, insertion, the surface (from each [of two] parts, i.e. both surfaces], the expansion [i.e. unfolding], the circuit or [s.= seu] periphery, finally the simplicity [i.e. undividedness] or compoundness [i.e. dividedness] of the leaves.

 

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