This study evaluated habitat selection by European beaver across a spatial gradient from local (within the family territory) to a broad, ecoregional scale. Using aerial photography, the researchers assessed the habitat composition of 150 beaver territories and compared these data with 183 randomly selected sites not occupied by the species.
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.
Linking Time Budgets to Habitat Quality Suggests that Beavers (Castor Canadensis) are Energy Maximizers
Study that tested whether beavers are energy maximizers by verifying the prediction that they allocate time to foraging activities independently of habitat quality in Kouchibouguac National Park of Canada in New Brunswick.
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.
The article describes beaver behaviors and how they affect ecosystems, highlighting a university lake preserve in Kalamazoo where humans are learning to coexist with beaver. The author highlights the successful use of a beaver deceiver device in the preserve.
A brief overview of beaver history, ecology and management in North America.
Summary of the benefits of beavers, their conflicts with humans, and the policies and conditions that affect their survival
A story told by Paul Schaffer of an Oregon Supreme court case in 1939.
