in which each hyperedge induces a connected subgraph. We show how to test in polynomial time whether a given hypergraph has a cactus support, i.e. a support that is a tree of edges and cycles. While it is
$\mathcal N\mathcal P$
-complete to decide whether a hypergraph has a 2-outerplanar support, we show how to test in polynomial time whether a hypergraph that is closed under intersections and differences has an outerplanar or a planar support. In all cases our algorithms yield a construction of the required support if it exists. The algorithms are based on a new definition of biconnected components in hypergraphs.
