A Grammatical Dictionary of Botanical Latin

 
Textura,-ae (s.f.I), abl.sg. textura: a web, weaving; tissue, q.v.; the following from Stearn (1983):

- textura angularis, tissue of short polyhedral cells without intercellular spaces.

- textura epidermoidea, tissue of closely interwoven irregularly disposed hyphae without interhyphal spaces, the walls united, usually forming a membranous or epidermis-like tissue.

- textura globularis, tissue of short rounded cells with intercellular spaces.

- textura intricata, tissue of interwoven irregularly disposed hyphae with distinct interhyphal spaces, the walls not united.

- textura oblita, tissue of more or less parallel hyphae all in one direction, with narrow lumina and strongly thickened walls cohering.

- textura porrecta, tissue of more or less parallel hyphae all in one direction, with wide lumina and non-thickened walls, not cohering; cf. Dissing in Bot. Tidsskr. 60: 109 (1964) (Stearn).

- capitulum peritheciale textura laevi, perithecial capitulum with smooth texture.

- basidiomata quum recentia textura succulenta vel gelatinosus, basidiomes when fresh with a texture succulent or gelatinous.

- extractum malti in textura assumptum, an extract of malt assimilated into the tissue.

- [moss] folia caulina longe oblonga erecta apice rotundato-truncata marginata concava, tenuissime membranacea, e cellulis longissimis angustis, ductibus heteromorphis, latiusculis interpositis, textura rameorum, serpentinis formata (C. Mueller), stem leaves long-oblong, erect, at the apex rounded-truncate, bordered, concave, very thinly membranaceous, [composed] of very long, narrow cells with heteromorphic rather wide ducts placed among them, the tissue of the branches formed with serpentine ones [i.e. ducts].

Note: texture, as a condition sensible to the touch: tactus,-us (s.m.IV), abl. sg. tactu 'a touch or touching:' e.g. folia ad tactum mollia (Stearn), leaves soft to the touch; see touch.

milk-like in texture: emulsivus,-a,-um (adj.A)

 

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