Beaver: Natural History Of A Wetlands Engineer
by: Muller-Schwarze, Dietland & Sun, Lixing
Beavers can and do dramatically change the landscape. The beaver is a keystone species-their skills as foresters and engineers create and maintain ponds and wetlands that increase biodiversity, purify water and prevent large-scale flooding. Biologists have long studied their daily and seasonal reoutines, family structures and dispersal patterns. As human development encroaches into formerly wild areas, property oewners and government authorities need new, nonlethal strategies for dealing with so-called nuisance beavers. In this book, the authors gather a wealth of scientific knowledge about both the North American and Eurasian beaver species. 190 pages, illustrations, b/w and color photos.

Beaver Tales
by: Tournay, Audrey

For well over 30 years, the author has rescued and raised beaver kits. She successfully did what wildlife biologists told her was impossible: she reintroduced them to the wild. Tournay operates the Aspen Valley Wildlife Sanctuary, where orphaned or injured moose, raccoons, ravens, skunks, foxes, fawns, woodchucks, muskrats, wolves, a lynx - even a full-grown adult lioness - have come into her care. Yet Tournay has a soft spot for beavers. That soft spot has occasionally been her bathroom, a make-shift den behind her woodstove or on her lap. Her hands-on interaction with many beavers has given her a special understanding of these often misunderstood wetland animals.These are wonderful, moving and often very funny stories about life with one of North America's most intelligent, innovative and inventive wild creatures. 157 pages, color and B/W photos
