- in tanta disjunctione specierum, tantae proprietates communes ammissae sunt, in such great separation of species, so many common characters are lost.

- in tantis mutationibus nulla species certa est, in such great changes no species is certain.

- in nulla muscorum parte tanta formarum varíetas quam in operculo, in no part of the mosses is there such a great variety of forms than in the operculum (note use of ‘quam’ = ‘than.’

- neque solum in tantis capsulis, sed etiam in mediocribus sporae magnae inventae, not only in such great capsules but also in medium ones are large spores found.

- sal marinum cum terra tanta quantitate mixtum ut fontes aquarum dulcium longe infrequentiores quam salsi, et nitraria naturalia non desunt etiam abundantissima (Desf.), sea salt is mixed in quantity with so much earth that (ground) springs of fresh water are far less frequent that salty ones, and [places for digging] native nitron are not lacking, they are even very abundant.

 

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