USE OF SHORELINE VEGETATION BY THE EUROPEAN BEAVER (CASTOR FIBER L.)

Keywords: European beaver, shoreline vegetation, food preferences
Abstract: The aim of the present study was to describe and characterize the use of shoreline vegetation by beavers for dam building as well as to determine their food preferences with regard to particular shrub and tree species. It was found that the selection of dam building materials by beavers was related to the occurrence and availability of certain tree and shrub species in the strip of shoreline vegetation. Tree branches to 6.0 in diameter and 0.5 to 3.0 m in length were used most often as construction material for dams. The analysis of food stored in winter caches revealed that beavers showed strong preferences for particular plant species.
