A Grammatical Dictionary of Botanical Latin

 
Recentiores (as noun and adj.) the moderns (said of autors, modern writers or authors (Lewis & Short) [> L. comparative of recens,-entis (adj.B)]; see auctor,-oris (s.m./f.III);

- auct. mult. recent., auctorum multorum recentium [all gen. pll.], of many recent authors.

- [Lichen fontanus major “the great water liverwort” (Dill.)] laudatur, inquit Cæsalpinus, a Recentioribus ad epatis calidam intemperiem, nam refrigerat & siccat, ac tollit obstructiones ob partium tenuitatem (Dill.), it is recommended, says Caesalpinus, by modern people (authors), for a hot [i.e. inflammed] disorder of the liver, for it cools down [i.e. relieves inflammation] and dries [it] up, and it takes away obstructions due to the thinness [i.e. emaciation] of the parts [i.e. organs].

- [moss] apice sunt vel liberi, ut in tota fere hac familià, vel cohaerentes, in Koelreutera hygrometrica, vel membrana tenuissimà super orificium, quod exacte claudit pròténsa, quamque recentiores epiphragma dixerunt agglutinati et apprehensi, ut in Polytrichis omnibus (Brid.), at the apex they [i.e. the teeth] are either free, as in nearly this whole family, or cohering [i.e. being connected or in contact] in Koelreutera [i.e. Funaria] hygrometrica, or with an extremely delicate membrane over the orifice, which, stretched out, it completely closes, and which more recent [i.e. modern] authors have called an epiphragm, [the teeth] having been agglutinated [i.e. brought together] and attached, as in all the Polytrichum species.

 

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