Les relations terrier/substrat ont été étudiées chez l'écrevisse Cambarus diogenes diogenes. Les recherches, conduites en vue de déterminer l'efficacité de creusement de C. d. diogenes dans des sols de texture variée, ont révélé que l'écrevisse était capable de construire ses terriers plus rapidement dans les sols à fine granulation. De plus, quand on lui donnait le choix entre deux substrats on la trouvait plus souvent dans les sols à granulation fine que dans ceux à granulation grossière. Ainsi, en présence de substrats à textures différentes, l'écrevisse "préfere" ceux où elle peut plus facilement creuser un terrier.
