What does the 'resp.' mean here?
STRAUSS (Laur.) resp. Franc. PETERSEN, Diss. de potu coffi. Giessen, 1666, in-4°.
Context: This is a bibliographic entry concerning one of the first books to discuss coffee (plant, seeds, & drink) in Europe. Attribution for the entire genre seems to be a mess (e.g. one Huguenot from Lyons may have used the name of his apothecary cousin as a pseudonym while in exile or his cousin may have plagiarized and updated his earlier work without him) but here the Disputation on the Puissance of Coffee (reprinted at Frankfurt the same year as De Potu Coffi) seems to have been a medical school dissertation written by Franz Peters (not Petersen) with Lorenz Strauss as his faculty advisor. Because of confusion over their roles, Strauss sometimes gets credited as the writer and even got a genus of coffee relatives (Straussia) named after him.
Wiktionary mentions resp. can mean 'respectivement' but that doesn't seem to be what it is in this entry. Any ideas?
