A Grammatical Dictionary of Botanical Latin

 
vis.: abbrev. for visus,-a,-um (part.A), q.v., 'seen.'

Vis, gen. sg. vis (s.f.III), acc. vim, abl. vi; plur. vires, gen. pl. virium, dat. & abl. pl. viribus: force, power, strength; impetus, energy; of disease: virulent, deadly;

- (fungus) modo sessile, modo substipitatum; teretiusculum, dum vi vitali vigentissima, turget, dein in formam obcordatam vel obovatam plus minus compressum (S&A), sometimes sessile, sometimes somewhat stalked, roundish, it puffs up as long as it is most flourishing with vital force, finally it is more or less compressed into an obcordate or obovate shape.

- in speciebus nonnullis affinibus articuli vix nisi vi separantur v. legumen integrum remanet (B&H), in some related species the joints are scarcely separated except by force or the legumen remains entire.

- [Octospora; fungi] semina ista, e thecis, aquae guttulae immissis, vi exploduntur (Hedwig), those seeds, from the thecae, when [the thecae] are introduced into a drop of water, are exploded away with force.

 

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