Fire and beaver in the boreal forest-grassland transition of western Canada – A case study from Elk Island National Park, Canada
This study found that prescribed fires negatively affected beaver lodge occupancy, an effect compounded with frequent burns. Though prescribed fire is considered an important landscape restoration process, the frequency of prescribed burning should be mitigated to ensure that flooding by beavers can continue as a key process that maintains wetlands on the landscape.
Beaver (Castor canadensis) mitigate the effects of climate on the area of open water in boreal wetlands in western Canada, 2008
This study examined how temperature, precipitation and beaver (Castor canadensis) activity influenced the area of open water in wetlands over a 54-year period in the mixed-wood boreal region of east-central Alberta, Canada.
The most sustainable, long-term solutions to beaver-human conflicts happen to be non-lethal practices.
