A Grammatical Dictionary of Botanical Latin

 
propullans,-antis (part.B): sprouting forth from; budding off (Engl. verb): “(of a plant or its parts) to arise like a bud from some precursor, often used with ‘off;’ to reproduce asexually, as a new cell (as in yeasts) by pinching off a small part of the parent cell” (WIII) [> L. propullo,-are 1. sprouted off, budded off from; not used in Classical Latin].

- [SPHACELLARIA, algae] Sph. Bertiana Denot., anne ramenta novella a Cladostepho propullantia? (Agardh); is Sphacellaria Bertiana, perhaps young ramenta budding off from [a] Cladostephus?

- [Stilophora; alga] St. papillosa nob. fronde compresso-cylindracea irregulariter dichotoma et per totam plerumque frondem ramentis irregulariter propullantibus obsessa (Agardh), St. papillosa [nobis, by us, i.e. [described] by me] with the frond compressed-cylindric, irregularly dichotomous and usually throughout the whole frond beset with irregularly budding off ramenta.

Erythronium propullans ‘sprouting forth’ (Fernald 1950), a plant “vegetatively propagated by prolonged offshoots from near middle of stem” (Fernald 1950); a species which in mature plants have the habit of producing bulbs on runners at a distance from the active bulb at the end of a stalk or runner of varying lengths and directions of growth. From each mature plant there are obtained two individuals at the close of the season, as the result of the vegetative propagation, in contrast to one only as customary in othe other species [F. H. Blodgett,1909. Notes in Botany and Zoology: The Stem Offshoot in Erythronium propullans Gray in The Johns Hopkins University Circular Vol. 28 [p. 706] p. 36-39.

 

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