Description
Summary:The ability of beavers to create an abundant habitat for a diverse array of plants and animals has been analysed time and again. The disappearance of beavers across the northern hemisphere, and what this effects, has yet to be comprehensively studied. This book analyses the beneficial role of beavers and their dams in the ecosystem of a river, focusing on one beaver meadow in Colorado. Ellen Wohl contextualises North St. Vrain Creek by discussing the implications of the loss of beavers across much larger areas.
