          Abstract

          The ability of three amphipods that occupy shallow subterranean habitats in the lower Potomac Basin of the US (hypotelminorheic), which often dry out seasonally, to withstand desiccation by burrowing in clay was investigated. Both Crangonyxshoemakeri, a wetland species, and Stygobromustenuis, a subterranean species, burrowed in clay in the laboratory after surface water was removed. Gammarusminus, a spring species, did not. All three species exhibited behavioral changes as the habitat dried out.
