Investigation into factors affecting the timing of natal dispersal in the Eurasian beaver using data from an 18-year individual-based study
The aim of this study was to identify factors that influence the preferences of European beavers for various tree species
The aim of this paper was to test whether the space use of Eurasian beavers seasonally varies and whether the pattern comprises diverse habitats.
A review of the beaver’s history, population change, distribution, and population estimates in Europe.
Mobility of Settlements and Elements of the Biological Signaling Field of Beavers (Castor fiber) in the Basin of the Tadenka River (Prioksko-Terrasny Nature Reserve)
A study that suggests a high density of the biological signaling field is a sign of possible depletion of food resources, and can explain how beavers can have such a large range.
Foraging Decisions of North American Beaver (Castor canadensis) are Shaped by Energy Constraints and Predation Risk
Study to determine if beavers are able to assess the risk of predation by using two main cues: the distance from the water and the presence or absence of predator odors.
Researchers examined interactions between beaver and fish communities in the types of streams selected for Eurasian beaver re-colonization. They found several critical elements of fish communities in these mountain streams that relate to beaver activity and its effects.
The Beaver Trust presents a webinar on Climate Change effects on farming in Europe and how beavers can help mitigate some of the resultant drought and flood damage. 2021.
A review by the University of Southampton of how the reintroduction of beaver will affect fish in Scotalnd
A literature review and summary of the beaver’s impact as an ecosystem engineer. It focuses primarily on the European beaver (castor fiber), but includes valuable information about the profound ecological benefits of the North American beaver (castor Canadensis) too.
This review summarizes how beaver impact ecosystem structure and geomorphology, hydrology and water resources, water quality, freshwater ecology, and humans and society.
