Beaver Herbivory and Its Effect on Cottonwood Trees Influence of Flooding Along Matched Regulated and Unregulated Rivers

We compared beaver (Castor canadensis) foraging patterns on Fremont cottonwood saplings and the probability of saplings being cut on a 10 km reach of the flow-regulated Green River and a 8.6 km reach of the free-flowing Yampa River in northwestern Colorado.

Beaver dams, hydrological thresholds, and controlled floods as a management tool in a desert riverine ecosystem, Bill Williams River, Arizona

Testing the hypothesis that controlled floods intended to drive the fluvial geomorphic and hydrologic processes necessary
for native tree recruitment will simultaneously destroy beaver dams.
