: can someone explain me please what is it subconcept?

: I took it from the sentece: Although the four conservation principles initially appear simple, they contain subconcepts.....

I couldn't find "subconcept" in a dictionary either. But from looking at several Web sites, it appears to relate to a way of formally organizing information or knowledge. A "concept," according to the World Book Dictionary, is a "general notion or idea; thought." Details or specific information would be listed under the main concept. Anyone else have an explanation?
