Seasonal Variation in the Home Range Size of the Eurasian Beaver: Do Patterns Vary Across Habitats?

The aim of this paper was to test whether the space use of Eurasian beavers seasonally varies and whether the pattern comprises diverse habitats.

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.

Ecosystem services provided by beavers Castor spp.

We aimed to recognise beaver-produced ecosystem services and quantify their theoretical value for the entire Northern Hemisphere.

Restoring wetland biodiversity using research: Whole-community facilitation by beaver as framework

Wetlands are declining worldwide, and there is a great need for their restoration and creation. One natural agent of wetland engineering is beavers.

Persistence at Distributional Edges: Columbia Spotted Frog Habitat in the Arid Great Basin, USA

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.

Livestock Grazing Limits Beaver Restoration in Northern New Mexico

The goal of this study was to evaluate factors such as cattle grazing that may limit the occurrence of dam-building beavers in northern New Mexico.

A Critical Review of the Effects of Beavers Upon Fish and Fish Stocks

A review by the University of Southampton of how the reintroduction of beaver will affect fish in Scotalnd

The Economic Value of Beaver Ecosystem Services Escalante River Basin, Utah 2001

In-depth report on how beaver could provide benefits to local residents and visitors well into the millions of dollars per year in Utah.

Beaver: Nature’s ecosystem engineers

This review summarizes how beaver impact ecosystem structure and geomorphology, hydrology and water resources, water quality, freshwater ecology, and humans and society.

Evaluation of the Ecological Impacts of Beaver Reintroduction on Aquatic Systems

Study on how beaver engineering and foraging has the potential to create unique and highly heterogeneous wetland and stream habitats

Beaver-Created Habitat Heterogeneity Influences Aquatic Invertebrate Assemblages in Boreal Canada

Demonstration on how beavers physically altered isolated shallow-water wetlands which then influenced aquatic invertebrates
