WHAT DOES EPIGEAL MEAN IN ENGLISH?
Epigeal, epigean, epigeic and epigeous are biological terms describing an organism's activity above the soil surface. In botany, a seed is described as showing epigeal germination when the cotyledons of the germinating seed expand, throw off the seed shell and become photosynthetic above the ground. The opposite kind, where the cotyledons remain non-photosynthetic, inside the seed shell, and below ground, is hypogeal germination. The terms epigean, epigeic or epigeous are used for organisms that crawl, creep like a vine, or grow on the soil surface: they are also used more generally for animals that neither burrow nor swim nor fly. The opposite terms are hypogean, hypogeic and hypogeous. An epigeal nest is a term used for a termite mound, the above ground nest of a colony of termites.
The definition of epigeal in the dictionary is of or relating to seed germination in which the cotyledons appear above the ground because of the growth of the hypocotyl. Other definition of epigeal is living or growing on or close to the surface of the ground.
