WHAT DOES ERICOID MEAN IN ENGLISH?

ericoid

Ericoid

The word "ericoid" is used in modern biological terminology for its literal meanings and for extensions. Etymologically the word is derived from two Greek roots via Latin adaptations. Firstly, the Ancient Greek name for plants now known in English as "heather" was "ἐρείκη", believed to be Latinised by Pliny as "Erica". Linnaeus, who predominantly wrote in Latin, used Erica as the name of the genus which still is known as such. However, when Linnaeus named an organism, using a specific epithet that described it as being like some particular thing, he commonly did so by appending the suffix "—οειδης". That was a contraction of "—ο + ειδος", denoting a likeness of form. In its Latinised form it became: "—oides". An example is the entry 9413 Stilbe ericoides according to Wappler's Index Plantarum to Linnaeus' "Species Plantarum". Further derivations emerged at need or convenience, such as "—oidea". Accordingly, ericoid could have more than one meaning and it has been misapplied from time to time in the literature.
