We are grateful to W Gerth for providing the amphipod
When we lift up stranded seaweed or sea-grass, we often see amphipods
jumping in all directions.

Dikerogammarus haemobaphes on leaf litter processing in UK rivers.
The feeding habits of shredders such as amphipods
are dependent upon the quantity, timing, and quality of organic debris input into the stream (Anderson and Sedell, 1979; FeRoy and Marks, 2006).
The numerically dominant epifauna collected from clam nets in Virginia were amphipods
Gammarus mucronatus (Say, 1818) and Melita sp.; a decapod the broke-backed shrimp; and two small gastropods the black-lined triphora Marshallora nigrocincta (Adams, 1839) and the lunar dove snail Astyris lunata (Say, 1826).
Boulders with filamentous algae in the experiment served as an object of grazing for the palaemonid prawns and gammarid amphipods
and as a refuge for gammarids.
crustaceans as fouling organisms in the Los Angeles-Long Harbors,with reference to the influence of seawater turbidity.
These tiny white crustaceans, now called Model Cave amphipods
or White Pine amphipods
, live in cool, clear groundwater and have, to date, only been found in two pools in this single cave.
As well as documenting new species, the team brought back incredible footage of the first supergiant amphipods
ever to be filmed alive - showing the crustaceans swimming, feeding and fending off would-be predators with their large body size and protective tails.
Both the spider and amphipod
gained federal protection in January 2000.
