Beaver Herbivory and Its Effect on Cottonwood Trees Influence of Flooding Along Matched Regulated and Unregulated Rivers
By D. Andersen | K. Wilson | S. Breck
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.

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.
