A Grammatical Dictionary of Botanical Latin

 
Sol, gen. sg. solis (s.m.III), abl. sg. sole: the sun; in Gk. comp. heli-, helio-, q.v.; see occidens, sun;

- rota solis, the disc of the sun.

- primus sol (s.m.III), the rising sun.

- rupes sole [alb.] expositus, rocks exposed to the sun; also rupes soli [dat.] expositus, exposed to the sun.

- [algae] Hab. ad rupes refluxu maris emersas soleque expósitas, ad littora Galloprovinciae et Italiae superioris (Agardh), it grows on rocks emersed [i.e. above and below the water] in the tidal ebb, exposed to the sun, on the beaches of Galloprovincia and upper Italy.

- radii solis, rays or beams of the sun, sunbeams (radius,-ii (s.m.II), abl.sg. radio: ray, beam of light).

- algae semper marinae et maria salsiora praeferentes, raro loca sole exposita inhabitantes (Agardh), an algae that is always marine and preferring the more salty seas, rarely inhabiting places exposed to the sun.

- [fungi] saepe, a sole praesertim justo citius tacta et exusta, in bullas varias corneas solidas pulvere destitutas indurata (S&A), often, especially if more quickly touched and dried out by a moderate sun, hardened into various bullae [i.e. blisters], with the texture of horn, solid, lacking dust [i.e. spores].

- verum praestantiae hujus coloris officit, quod aëris vicissitudines & solem non bene ferat, quod Theophrastus jam observavit, Plinius vero perperam scripsît, elui non posse (Dill.), nevertheless, reality interferes with excellence of this color, because it may not well endure the vicissitudes of the air and sun, which Theophrastus already observed, Pliny certainly incorrectly wrote that it was not possible to be rinsed off.

Ros-solis, ‘dew of the sun;’ Sundew, = genus Drosera,-ae (s.f.I), > Gk. droseros, ‘dewy;’ see drosos; see ros, gen.sg. roris (s.m.III); see dew.

 

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