Watersheds shape beaver genetics, according to new OSU study

A new study out of OSU surveyed over 300 beavers, collecting genetic material for analysis. Researchers are looking at how variations in local vegetation, among other factors, affect beaver genetics, and thus affect dispersal of the species. This means higher success rates for beaver relocation that occurs within the same watershed vs. relocation to a new/different watershed.
