explain epigeal germination
Epigeal Germination (Dicots)
* In epigeal (epi=above) germination, the hypocotyl (hypocotyl is the stem below the cotyledons) pushes the cotyledons above ground. [
* The cotyledons function as leaves until the true leaves emerge.
* Example - bean, canola
Hypogeal Germination (Dicot)
* In hypogeal germination, the cotyledons remain below ground.
* The epicotyl (stem above the cotyledons)
grows and raises the plumule out of the soil.
* Example - pea ]
