This project investigated the effects of climate on multiple aspects of river hydrology, including the interaction with expanding beaver populations in the Northeast. Our findings suggest that beavers increase water retentions, and sometimes flooding, in rivers which increases nitrogen removal.
Potential mitigation of and adaptation to climate-driven changes in California’s highlands through increased beaver populations
This study reviews three literatures in an effort to evaluate the potential for beaver to adapt to and to mitigate anticipated changes in California’s higher elevation land- and waterscapes.
The Persistence of Beaver-Induced Geomorphic Heterogeneity and Organic Carbon Stock in River Corridors 2018
Follow-up study of carbon storage associated with beaver dams.
In-depth report on how beaver could provide benefits to local residents and visitors well into the millions of dollars per year in Utah.
Study that finds beaver-induced changes to habitat quality, stability, and connectivity may increase spotted frog population resistance and resilience to seasonal drought, grazing, non-native predators, and climate change.
This publication, guided by the inseparable nature of streams and riparian ecosystems, emphasizes the interrelationships and continuity of riparian areas along with dependent wildlife and human services.
Beavers Buffering Blazes: The Potential Role of Castor canadensis in Mitigating Wildfire Impacts on Stream Ecosystems
The potential role of beavers in mitigating wildfire impacts on stream ecosystems
Effects of Beaver Impoundments on Dissolved Organic Matter Quality and Biodegradability in Boreal Riverine Systems
Assessment of the changes in dissolved organic matter quality and the biodegradation patterns in beaver systems across Sweden
Laws, regulations, and management plans to improve streamflow and stream temperature : a case study in the North Fork Burnt River Watershed
This project explored the effectiveness of a management plan on improving streamflow and stream temperature
Report on the results of continuous measurements of CO2 and CH4 fluxes made in the Boreal Ecosystem-Atmosphere Study during the ice-free season of the 1994 field campaign.
