Beavers are a type of natural disturbance in the boreal forest, just like fires, ice storms, and windthrows. They have a big impact of their surrounding environment, on the economy and on the impacts of climate change. We want to look at the dynamics of their territorial occupation in order to better understand their habitat selection in ways that...
