Understainding beaver biology

 Beavers are an integral part  of American history and  commerce. They are  considered a “keystone  species” in riparian (the  interface between land and  a river or stream)  communities. 
 They are unique among  mammals in that they alter  their habitat to meet their  needs, primarily by  damming up small rivers  and streams to form ponds,  and their skills as builders in  the animal kingdom are  unparalleled.
This is the first of a three-part series on the beaver.
