WHAT DOES HYPOGEAN MEAN IN ENGLISH?

Hypogeal

Hypogeal, hypogean, hypogeic and hypogeous are biological terms describing an organism's activity below the soil surface. In botany, a seed is described as showing hypogeal germination when the cotyledons of the germinating seed remain non-photosynthetic, inside the seed shell, and below ground. The converse, where the cotyledons expand, throw off the seed shell and become photosynthetic above the ground, is epigeal germination. In water purification works, the hypogeal layer is a biological film just below the surface of slow sand filters. It contains microorganisms that remove bacteria and trap contaminant particles. The terms hypogean and hypogeic are used for fossorial and troglobitic cave-living organisms. The term hypogeous is more commonly used for fungi with underground fruiting bodies - for example, truffles. The opposite terms are epigean, epigeic and epigeous.

Definition of hypogean in the English dictionary
