A Grammatical Dictionary of Botanical Latin

 
quandoquidem [conjunction]: since, seeing that, since (in fact), since indeed, since really; seeing that, realizing that, inasmuch as;

- Meesia Didymodonti accedit quandoquidem margines foliares dentati sunt; Meesia approaches Didymodon, inasmuch as the leaf margins are dentate.

- [moss] ex ista definitione Neckerae crispae nomine specificum summopere improprium, [quandoquidem] eius superficies nullatenus crispa est sed vere undulosa (Brid.), according to that definition of Neckera crispa the species name [i.e. the epithet ‘crispa’] is very improper [i.e. unsuitable], [since] in fact its surface is in no way crisped but it is really undulose [i.e. full of small undulations or waves].

- [moss] sane in illis regionibus, campi depressi marique propiores tractus muscos nullos educare possunt, at in locis editioribus, quae frigidiore coelo crebrioribusque imbribus fruantur successu haud infelici quaerentur, [quandoquidem] ex observationibus constat, in eádem altitudine quamuis in diuertissimis terrae plagis, easdem saepe plantas reperiri. (Brid.), doubtless in those regions, low plains and tracts [of land] nearer to the sea, are able to support no mosses, and in higher situations, which enjoy a colder climate and more frequent rains, they will have achieved a not unhappy success, [seeing that] it is beyond doubt, based on observations, in the same altitude, although in the most different zones of the earth, often the same plants are to be encountered [i.e. found].

- [moss] tandem peristomum dentato-reticulatum duobus tantum generibus, nempe Fontinali et Meesiae competit; a quo caractère tamen Meesia longiseta (M. triquetrum [sic]) recedit, [quandoquidem] eius internum peristomum minime reticulatum est, sed e processibus liberis per paria approximatis constât. Hinc genus illud vitio laborat (Brid.), to be sure, the dentate-reticulate peristome agrees only with two genera, namely of Fontinalis and Meesia, by which character, however, Meesia longiseta (M. triquetra) departs [i.e. is separated], [since in fact] its inner peristome is the least reticulate [i.e. not reticulate whatsoever], but it is composed of free [i.e. not fused] processes close together in pairs. For this reason, that genus suffers from a defect.

 

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